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 at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA. The $8,000 award for the 2015 course, May 31−June 6, may be used toward the cost of tuition, travel, housing, and subsistence during the period of the course and the post-course follow-up period.
The closing date for receipt of all application materials is February 2, 2015. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by March 31, 2015.
The College is fully funding two of the scholarships, both reserved for general surgeons. Also, a number of surgical specialty societies are partnering with the ACS to cosponsor a scholarship for a member in good standing of both the College and their society. Participating societies include the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, the American Pediatric Surgical Society, the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Surgical Association, the American Urogynecologic Society, the American Urological Society (via its Gallagher Scholarship program), the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma Foundation, New England Surgical Society, the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the Society for Vascular Surgery.
