Apply By May 1 for International Scholarships for Surgical Education


Two international scholarships focused on surgical education and sponsored by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education and the International Relations Committee will offer faculty members from countries outside the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to participate in a variety of faculty development activities. All application materials and supporting documents are due May 1.

The scholars will participate in the Surgical Education: Principles and Practice Course at the Clinical Congress 2017, October 22–26 in San Diego, CA. In addition, the scholars will attend plenary sessions and courses that address surgical education and training across the continuum of professional development. The scholars, in turn, will use the knowledge and skills they acquire to improve surgical education and training in their home institutions and countries. The scholarships include a stipend of $10,000 to cover travel, per diem expenses, and the cost of Clinical Congress courses. The registration cost for Clinical Congress and fees for the surgical education courses will be provided free to the scholars.
