ASCRS taught me to be uncompromising in the pursuit of better outcomes for patients through application of the latest technology and surgical techniques.
John Berdahl, MD

I first joined ASCRS as a first year resident when surgical instruction courses appealed to me and were a perfect adjunct to what I was learning in residency. I later learned that the educational offerings are just the beginning of what it means to belong to ASCRS. This organization understands what today's surgeons need—from advocacy to practice resources to opportunities to connect with colleagues from around the country and world. Because ASCRS is led by its members, ASCRS serves its members. I look forward to continuing my membership for the rest of my career.
