Welcome to MCACS
The Michigan Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) is Michigan’s grass roots division of the American College of Surgeons. The Chapter works at the state level to influence Michigan governmental policies that affect your everyday practice such as medical malpractice law, safety issues, and scope of practice law. Governors are selected from the MCACS to represent your interests to the ACS. Michigan Chapter members also act as representatives for the College on the ACS Committee on Cancer, Committee on Trauma and Young Surgeons Issues Committee.
A Message from the President
It is an honor to represent the Michigan Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS), a scientific and educational association of surgeons who meet each May in camaraderie to network, enhance the science and art of surgery and provide encouragement to those who are the future of surgery, our surgical residents. In addition to holding our Annual Meeting, the MCACS is involved in advocacy at the state level. The Chapter is comprised of greater than 1100 surgeons and is governed by a Council, led by Dr. David Edelman.
