American Board of Surgery (ABS) Nomination Application

The Council of the ABS seeks nominees to serve a six- year term. The Council serves as a resource of knowledge, skill, wisdom, and expertise for the organization, and is where issues that cross specialties are discussed. The Council consists of a diverse group of surgeons across a spectrum of practice and experience, and includes approximately 30 members from across the specialties recognized by the ABS.

Council members each serve on one of the five ABS specialty boards (General Surgery Board, Vascular Surgery Board, Pediatric Surgery Board, Complex General Surgical Oncology Board, or Trauma Burns and Critical Care Board) and one or more of the five Council Committees (Assessment Committee, Diplomates and Surgeons in Practice Committee, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, Education and Training Committee, and/or Research Committee).
