2016 Annual Meeting
Dear ACMS Members and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my honor to invite you to Orlando for the 48th Annual Meeting of the American College of Mohs Surgery taking place Thursday, April 28 through Sunday, May 1, 2016 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel.
The Scientific Program Committee has devoted significant time and energy to crafting a program worthy of our participation. Of note are our guest speakers, Drs. Benjamin Chang, Stephen Kovach, Rosalie Elenitsas and Wendy Lee, whose collective expertise in the areas of plastic surgery, hand surgery and transplantation, dermatopathology, ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, and melanoma add a valuable dimension to our meeting.
Our keynote speaker is Martin Makary, MD, MPH, FACS, who last year was named one of America’s 20 Most Influential People in Health Care by Health Leaders Magazine. A surgical oncologist at Johns Hopkins, best-selling author, and creator of The Surgery Checklist described in the book The Checklist Manifesto, his expertise in surgical quality and safety, and advocacy for greater physician input in the re-design of health care, will provide important perspective. As author of the New York Times bestseller, Unaccountable, a book about physician-led efforts to increase transparency and improve quality in health care, Dr. Makary inspired an Improving Wisely collaboration with the Mohs College set to debut in 2016.

I cordially invite you to the 2015 ACMS Annual Meeting! The Program Committee and many other members of the ACMS have carefully designed a curriculum to represent the diverse perspectives and meet the needs of all our members.
The Morning Mini-Sessions allow you to tailor your curriculum to your particular interests in reconstruction, cutaneous oncology, professional development, or adjunctive treatments to Mohs surgery. We have expanded opportunities for members to present original research. We hope you’ll enjoy the new “Rapid Pearls” abstract session, which features two-minute tips to improve Mohs surgery technique, frozen section pathology, reconstructive surgery, or practice management. The plenary sessions feature many practical topics on reconstruction, cutaneous oncology, Mohs surgery and laboratory techniques, and practice management. Read more of the Program Chair's Message
