American Pediatric Surgical Association
More than 1,400 members strong, the American Pediatric Surgical Association is dedicated to saving lifetimes. APSA helps patients and families every day by:
- Developing and sharing surgical standards and quality of care through guidelines and the children’s surgery verification project
- Supporting our members through initiatives on diversity, wellness, and educational resources such as the annual meeting, handbooks, and the Pediatric Surgery NaT, which was written by nearly 500 APSA volunteers
- Advocating for the well-being and safety of children related to societal issues such as child abuse and gun violence.
Thank you to those APSA members that have contributed to the APSA Sustainability Fund
