The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is offering scholarships to subsidize 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. Applications are available at the Heller School website, and are due no later than February 1.
The 2018 course will take place June 3–9. 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 course and the post-course follow-up period.
Two scholarships, reserved for general surgeons, are fully funded by the ACS, and a large number of the surgical specialty societies have partnered with the ACS to cosponsor a scholarship for a member in good standing of both the College and their society to attend this intensive program. Participating societies include the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and 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 Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, the New England Surgical Society, the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the Society for Vascular Surgery.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process in early April 2018. Questions may be directed to the ACS Scholarships Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-202-5281. Requirements for these scholarships are posted on the ACS website.
