2020 ASC 10X10 Career Development Travelling Fellowship
More information coming soon.
The ASC 10×10 Career Development Traveling Fellowship has been made possible due to the strong financial support of the members of AAS and SUS, and our Congress attendees.
The purpose of this traveling fellowship is to provide an active member of the AAS and SUS the opportunity to visit a scholar or clinician at another institution for one week. The goal of the fellowship is to further the recipient’s academic development, and to promote interaction and learning among surgeons in different academic practices in the United States. The traveling fellow is expected to observe procedures in the operating room, participate in relevant research activities, and attend host institution conferences at the institution of his/her choosing for one week.
The award is a $2,000 stipend to support the recipient’s airfare, lodging, and other related expenses. The recipient will be announced at the 2020 Academic Surgical Congress in Orlando, Florida during the ASC Awards Ceremony on February 6th, 2020.
