The Emory Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) is located across the street from Emory University Hospital in the B Clinic building. The ASC has six operating rooms and six endoscopy suites. They perform over 6,500 surgical procedures  and over 8,000 endoscopy procedures every year. The majority of the surgical procedures are ophthalmologic, but they also perform general surgery, ENT, gynecological, urological and plastic surgery procedures. The endoscopic procedures range from screening colonoscopies to advanced endoscopic procedures including ERCPs and EUSs. Residents usually spend one month in the ASC during their CA2 or CA3 year.
