International Scholarships for Surgical Education
The American College of Surgeons Division of Education and International Relations Committee are pleased to announce two international scholarships focused on surgical education. These awards, in the amount of $10,000 each, provide young faculty members from countries other than the United States and Canada with the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational opportunities for faculty development and enhancement that will result in acquisition of new knowledge and skills in surgical education and training. This knowledge and these skills will be useful in improving surgical education and training at the scholar’s home institution and country.
The two scholars will participate in the Annual ACS Clinical Congress, including the course Surgical Education: Principals and Practice Course, as well as other plenary sessions and courses that address surgical education and training across the continuum of professional development. There may be a focus on the needs of practicing surgeons, surgery residents, medical students, and members of the surgical team, or on building knowledge and skills in evaluating and adopting new surgical technologies into surgical practice. Following the Clinical Congress, the scholars will visit appropriate Level I ACS accredited Education Institutes or similarly recognized and established centers with a plan of study and interaction tailored to their particular educationbased focus. These centers are typically located in large academic hospitals, which may also allow exposure to clinical areas of interest to the scholar. At the conclusion of the Clinical Congress and their visits to suitable institutions, each scholar will send to the International Relations Committee and to the Division of Education a brief report outlining the outcomes that have been achieved as a result of the scholarship, specifically focusing on achievement of the objectives outlined in their application for the scholarship. Evidence of support of the scholar’s objectives from the leadership at the home institution must be provided by the applicant and will be used as one of the criteria for selection of the scholar. The scholarship will facilitate involvement of the scholar in subsequent collaborative ventures in education and training under the aegis of the ACS Division of Education.
Each scholarship provides a stipend of $10,000, supporting travel and per diem in the U.S., and the cost of courses undertaken at the Clinical Congress and at the centers to be visited. Clinical Congress registration will be provided gratis, and assistance in reserving thrifty housing in the Clinical Congress city will also be provided. In 2014, the Clinical Congress city is San Francisco, California.
