Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons is a professional qualification to practise as a senior surgeon in Ireland or the United Kingdom.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has launched the Inspiring Quality initiative, because we believe that quality health care programs offer the best chance to transform our health care system into one that expands access to care, improves outcomes, and slows the accelerating cost curve. Quite simply, improving quality leads to fewer complications, and that translates into better outcomes and greater access for patients, as well as lower costs. This video exemplifies our belief that by working together with health care leaders around the nation, the ACS, through its quality programs, will continue to have a tremendous impact on improving care and leading our health care system in the right direction.
