The mission of the clinical practice committee focuses on the “patient care”, and “education” pillars of CAGS. Our goal is to provide high yield, practice relevant content updates to CAGS members, in-line with current literature and evolving standards of care.

Some examples of how we fulfill this mandate include:

  • SUB-SPECIALITY PRACTICE UPDATES – Bimonthly, easy to read, topical updates in general surgery sub-specialties aimed at reviewing new literature, current controversies, and practice relevant recommendations to the Canadian general surgeon.
  • CAGS TV – A multimedia resource available to members in all stages of their careers providing educational video clips of surgical procedures and approaches.
  • SOCIAL MEDIA – To use social media to engage our members in the areas of clinical practice updates, Canadian surgical contributions to the literature, and CAGS work in these areas.
