Clinical Congress 2020
Chicago, Illinois

October 4-8, 2020

Planning for Clinical Congress 2020 is under way for the conference to be presented remotely and with consideration of a smaller live meeting in Chicago, IL. Issues to be addressed (based on the results of a member survey) include surgeons’ willingness to attend, the ability to realistically maintain social distancing with large crowds, and the impact of travel restraints some institutions have imposed. The concerns about a second surge in COVID-19 cases and its subsequent effect on the surgical workforce are real and are under consideration. A final decision will be made over the next two weeks.
