2023 Fellows Institute
Activity Overview

SSO’s Fellows Institute is an annual educational program co-sponsored by the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (AHPBA) and the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS). Fellows Institute promotes professional collegial relationships with peers and medical society members. It reinforces that learning is a life-long professional responsibility to be maintained through Continuous Certification and continuing education.

Participation in this program is prioritized for those fellows in SSO-approved Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship Programs, ACGME or RCPSC-accredited Complex Surgical Oncology Fellowship Programs (2nd Year Fellows only), and Fellowship Council-accredited HPB fellowship programs. Registration for this event sells out quickly, so please register in advance.

You must select one program track to participate in (either Breast or CGSO). If you are interested in registering for both programs, please contact SSO at Participation in both programs is dependent on space and may require additional registration fees.

Registration is required to book housing. The housing link will be sent in your registration confirmation email. Please book housing as soon as possible. There is a limited number of rooms at the group rate.
