Dear Fellow Members of the AAS,
It is my privilege to represent our organization at the American Board of Surgery (ABS). As many of you are aware, the major function of the ABS is to help protect the American public by providing an independent, nonprofit organization to provide board certification to surgeons who have met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge. Attached is a link to the Spring 2014 Newsletter from the ABS which outlines many relevant issues for our fellow AAS members. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time or if you have any concerns you would like conveyed to the ABS, please let me know. I hope to detail active issues in future blog postings (as I figure the system out…). Again, thank you for the privilege of representing you at the American Board of Surgery.
