The American College of Surgeons is pleased to announce a program for international surgeons concerned with issues of quality improvement, the International ACS NSQIP® Scholarships. Applications are now being accepted for the year 2019.
The closing date for receipt of applications and all supporting documentation is 15 February 2019.
Each Scholarship offers a stipend of $10,000 US, participation in the annual National Surgical Quality Improvement Program conference, which takes place July 19-22, 2019 in Washington, DC, and the expectation of meeting with Program Leadership and Surgeon Champions from ACS NSQIP participating hospitals. Following the NSQIP conference, the candidate will visit 1-2 hospitals reflecting the candidate’s specific clinical interests. These hospitals should also have strong quality programs. Assistance will be provided to make hotel reservations in the conference city.
