American College of Surgeons Health Policy Research Institute Releases Surgery Workforce Atlas That Shows Surgeon Shortage Across the U.S.
Date:10/5/2010

ere is no clear consensus on the recommended ratio of surgeons to population. The primary goal of the maps is help practitioners, policymakers and patients identify places of limited patient access to surgical and other health care services both now and in the future.

ACS HPRI is already working on a second version of the Atlas which will feature all of the surgical subspecialties, overlay facilities such as hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, and offer visual displays using alternative geographic units including hospital referral regions.

About the American College of Surgeons

The American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational organization of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical practice and to improve the care of the surgical patient. The College is dedicated to the ethical and competent practice of surgery. Its achievements have significantly influenced the course of scientific surgery in America and have established it as an important advocate for all surgical patients. The College has more than 77,000 members and is the largest organization of surgeons in the world. For more information, visit www.facs.org.

About the Institute

In March 2008, the American College of Surgeons established a new Health Policy Research Institute to facilitate the scholarly assessment of the role of surgery and surgical services in the evolving health care environment. The creation of this Institute is in response to the need for high-quality and relevant data on the health care system, the economy and society as they affect surgical patients and practitioners. The Institute is based at the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at the University of North Carolina. http://www.acshpri.org/index.html
