Heller School Executive Leadership Program scholarships available

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is offering scholarships to subsidize attendance and participation in the Executive Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA.

The 2013 course will take place June 9-15. The award is in the amount of $8,000 to be used toward the cost of tuition, travel, housing, and subsistence during the period of the program and the post-course follow-up period.

The College is funding two 2013 scholarships for general surgeons. The College is pleased that several surgical specialty societies also have agreed to co-sponsor a scholarship for a member in good standing of both the College and the respective surgical society to attend this intensive program.
