SBAS motivates, mentors and inspires young surgeons and medical students to pursue academic careers

Welcome to the Society of Black Academic Surgeons.

The Society of Black Academic Surgeons (SBAS) was founded in 1989 against the backdrop of a paucity of African-American surgeons in academic medicine and the absence of an organized network of African-American surgeons to stimulate, mentor and inspire young surgeons and medical students to pursue academic careers. The Society’s annual meeting is designed to stimulate academic excellence among its members by providing a forum of scholarship in collaboration with the leading Departments of Surgery in the United States.

SBAS is governed by an eight-member executive Committee and has more than 200 members throughout the U.S. All surgical faculty are eligible for full membership. Surgical residents are encouraged to join as associate members. American Journal of Surgery is the official publication of SBAS.
