LAC + USCEvery Thursday morning, the entire division assembles for the weekly Acute Care Surgery Morbidity and Mortality Conference. Nursing Administration and Quality Assurance personnel are routinely present reviewing and recording the proceedings. This crucial conference is an institutional internal mechanism for monitoring patient outcomes and trends. Individual physician actions are scrutinized and assessed. Justification and rationale for specific management decisions are explored and weighed against the particular clinical situation and the pertinent existing literature. Acute Care Surgery M&M Conference is distinct from acute care surgery cases presented at the Departmental M&M Conference. Division of Acute Care Surgery cases are presented there every six weeks.

Two other weekly conferences deserve mention. A core curriculum held Mondays at noon involves presentations by staff and critical care fellows of intensive care concepts, directed towards discussion of critical care issues commonly seen in the intensive care setting. Conferences are also attended by nurses and affiliated personnel. Complementing this conference is the ACS Journal Club (Wednesdays at noon), in which interesting, controversial, or landmark papers involving emergency surgery, trauma surgery, or critical care topics are discussed.
