Michigan Chapter expands Program to include Resident Jeopardy and QuickShots in 2017

The 64th Annual Meeting of the Michigan Chapter of the ACS (MCACS) and the 66th Annual Surgical Resident’s Competition took place at Boyne Mountain Resort, Boyne Falls MI on May 17-19, 2017. The meeting was a great success, led by President Craig Reickert and Program Chair M. Ashraf Mansour. The Michigan Committee on Trauma also held the 67th Annual Keyport Trauma Symposium led by Wayne Vanderkolk MD, FACS.

This year, we expanded the MCACS meeting to include our inaugural competition of Resident Jeopardy, led by Donn Schroder MD FACS, with 6 expert teams competing, and University of Michigan resident winners Vahagn Nikolian MD and Patrick Georgoff MD. We also added “QuickShot” research presentations, allowing a greater number of residents to participate in the annual MCACS meeting. The new program format was a great success, and a number of surgical residents received awards for their excellent research presentations:
