The American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA) encompasses nearly all pediatric surgeons in the United States and more within North America and worldwide. APSA provides a community specific to the interests and needs of the pediatric surgeon, as well as CME, training and educational opportunities. We encourage all pediatric surgeons to apply for membership.
