11 Board of Governors Participation and involvement from the Governors varies greatly which severely hampers their effectiveness in successfully fulfilling their role The College needs to develop better mechanisms to understand their interests and determine an appropriate opportunity for them to be actively involved within the College Reassess the composition (including # of) Governors to better match the constituency Incorporate a Governor review and feedback process to drive more accountability Assessment ResultRecommendation Strategy Governors need more interaction with one another and need a clearer chartering of work from the Regents Create a formal time for the BOG to present at Regent Meetings Review Governor priorities to ensure proper alignment with the College mission  Examples of poor alignment (Reimbursement, Tort reform) Incorporate newer, easier ways for the Governors to interact with each other and other parts of the College including:  Smaller, more local retreats  Webinars, Teleconferences  Involvement in BOR committees  Regent involvement in BOG committees Process Technology Process

35 Program Director Quotes Amount of “work” (paper) has increased exponentially in last 10 years Most of that “work” has absolutely no bearing on improved surgical graduate education and certainly not on patient care. The current required structure of residency education promotes a change in the way we practice …….. largely disregards the patient. Created an environment that effectively says to the resident “your personal well being is more important than the patient you treat” Program Director Quotes Amount of “work” (paper) has increased exponentially in last 10 years Most of that “work” has absolutely no bearing on improved surgical graduate education and certainly not on patient care.

37 Surgical Residency Training: The Need for Reform Frank R. Lewis, M.D. Executive Director American Board of Surgery September 30, 2012 Board of Governors American College of Surgeons Chicago

38 Potential Solutions Increase the length of resident training, either by extending the residency to 6 years or combining residency with mandatory specialty fellowship training. 80% + of residents are already completing post- residency fellowships, so the impact of adding the other 20% would be significant but manageable. A combined program of residency and fellowship offers significant advantages, with Board eligibility still achieved at 5 years. Conditional independence, limited autonomy, and ability to bill to generate salary support would all be present in fellowship but not residency. The specialty fellowships which are absent are in broad general surgery and acute care surgery.

39 Executive DIrector, David B. Hoyt, MD, FACS SGR, Fiscal Cliffs, and ACO's most significant time of change since the Flexner report forever changed medical education in this country leading by emphasizing quality, surgical outcomes, patient care (NSQIP, TQiP) advocacy on behalf of surgeons and patients(ACS-PAC, F Street) ACS sponsored effort at rewriting the rule book on surgical reimbursement
