SCORE logo
The Surgical Council on Resident Education (SCORE®) is a nonprofit organization formed in 2004 by the principal organizations involved in American surgical education. In 2019, SCORE merged with the ABS. SCORE's mission is to improve the education of trainees in general surgery and related specialties through the development and maintenance of a national curriculum. The SCORE Portal was created to provide high-quality educational content, in support of the SCORE Curriculum Outline, to trainees and their programs.
