The American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) and the International Relations Committee offer International ACS NSQIP scholarships for two surgeons from countries other than the United States or Canada who demonstrate strong interests in surgical quality improvement.
The scholarships, in the amount of $10,000 each, provide the Scholars with an opportunity to attend the 2017 ACS NSQIP National Conference July 21–24 in New York, NY, and meet with Program Leadership and Surgeon Champions from ACS NSQIP participating hospitals. Following the NSQIP conference, the candidate is encouraged to visit one or two hospitals reflecting the candidate’s specific clinical interests. These hospitals should also have strong quality programs.
Completed applications for the International ACS NSQIP scholarships for the year 2017 and all of the supporting documentation must be received by the International Liaison Section prior to February 15, 2017, in order for an applicant to receive consideration by the selection committee. All applicants will be notified of the selection committee’s decision in May 2017.
