The New England Surgical Society is greatly strengthened by the recruitment of its membership from all backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, viewpoints, and experiences. NESS supports its membership by creating an inclusive environment, enhanced by mentorship and by developing leadership skills for surgeons from diverse backgrounds. NESS is committed to advancing cultural competency, providing equitable care, and advocating the best training and research agenda possible to serve ALL patients.
In keeping with its long-standing history, the New England Surgical Society promotes a culture of mutual respect, and we encourage an atmosphere of professionalism, intellectual honesty, and inquiry. We carefully consider the content of all research presentations submitted to and selected for our biannual meetings and all society endorsed publications in order to ensure that they are consistent with our culture and values. We entrust our members to treat each other with respect when asking questions of our presenters and of each other, and the society will not tolerate any form of bias, hatred or any perceived form of discrimination including against race, gender, sexual orientation, sex and gender identity, or ethnicity.
The New England Surgical Society is now accepting applications for Active, Senior, Affiliate, and Candidate membership. Review the criteria for each membership category here. New applications must be initiated by current NESS Active and Senior members via the Members Only Area. Each electronic Active, Senior, or Affiliate membership application for consideration in the 2022 cycle must be completed and submitted online by July 31, 2021, and all support letters must be uploaded by the applicant's three sponsors after receiving notification that the application has been completed (and before the September 24th state caucus during the 2021 Annual Meeting). Candidate membership applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
The NESS Scholars Foundation exists to provide financial support to enhance the clinical and educational opportunities of the membership of the NESS in their efforts to strengthen the discipline of surgery in New England. Learn more about the Foundation and how you can make a contribution.
