SCORE was formed in 2006 as a nonprofit consortium by the principal organizations involved in U.S. surgical education, with the mission of improving the education of trainees in general surgery and its related specialties. In fall 2019, SCORE merged with the ABS. For more information about SCORE, see our About SCORE page or visit www.surgicalcore.org.
