This article reviews the Faculty Research Fellowships offered by the ACS, which are intended to assist a surgeon in the establishment of a new and independent research program.
As the ACS celebrates its Centennial by reflecting on the achievements of the College’s founders and other surgeon leaders, it’s clear that the organization has a long history of providing opportunities for promising young physicians. In this article, several former ACS scholars describe how the ACS scholarship program had a notable effect on their career path and why these programs will continue to play an essential role as the College enters its next century.
The ACS awarded its Faculty Research Fellowships for 2012 earlier this year. These two-year fellowships are offered to surgeons entering careers in surgery or a surgical specialty and carry awards of $40,000 per year from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2014.
