Upcoming Events

Virtual and in-person events, webinars, and town halls

Leading up to the launch of EPAs in July 2023 for all ACGME-accredited general surgery training programs, the ABS held frequent webinars, town halls and related virtual events, in addition to sending representatives to speak at in-person meetings when possible. Recordings of these presentations are available to view on our EPA Resources page. 

For anyone who is interested in learning more about EPAs, we encourage you to view our video library and register for upcoming events as they are scheduled.

Additional events are planned as they are needed. Please check this page frequently, as new events will be added as they are scheduled.
