American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

The Gerald B. Healy Traveling Mentorship Award

Healy Award Fundraising Initiative Achieves Goal 

Gerald B. Healy

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Foundation announced that the fundraising initiative for the Gerald B. Healy Traveling Mentorship Award has reached a successful conclusion with more than $200,000 raised. The fund was established to honor its namesake, Gerald B. Healy, MD, FACS, FRCS(Hon), FRCSI(Hon), who is a passionate advocate for engaging young medical trainees in lessons on safety, quality, and professionalism.

Dr. Healy is Emeritus Gerald B. Healy Chair in Otolaryngology, Children’s Hospital, Boston, MA; professor of otology and laryngology, Harvard Medical School, Boston; and member, Board of Directors, Council on Surgical and Perioperative Safety; an ACS Past-President; and Past-Chair of the ACS Board of Regents.

The Healy Award will be used by one recipient annually to visit and engage with one or more successful mentors. The recipient will be expected to publish a substantive article in the Bulletin of the American College of Surgeons, detailing the educational experience. Over time, Healy Awardees will preserve their mentors’ wisdom and guidance for themselves and future generations of surgeons.

The ambitious goal of $200,000 was set to initiate the annual award soon and was achieved through the generous support of many Fellows and friends. Those who would like to honor Dr. Healy in this unique way may still donate to the fund. The Foundation offers a number of ways to give, and donations are tax-deductible. Please call 312-202-5338 with any questions.
