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 2019 course is scheduled for June 2–8. The award is in the amount of $8,000 to cover the cost of tuition, travel, housing, and subsistence during the period of the course and the postcourse follow-up period. The closing date for receipt of all application materials is February 1, 2019.
Two scholarships, reserved for general surgeons, are fully funded by the College.

Participating societies include the following: American Association of Neurological Surgeons, American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, American Pediatric Surgical Association, American Society of Breast Surgeons, American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Surgical Association, American Urogynecologic Society, American Urological Society (via its Gallagher Scholarship program), Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association, Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, New England Surgical Society, Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the Society for Vascular Surgery.
