Apply for the Claude H. Organ, Jr., MD, FACS, Traveling Fellowship by June 30

May 24, 2022

The family and friends of the late Claude H. Organ, Jr., MD, FACS, established an endowment through the ACS Foundation to provide funding for an annual fellowship for an outstanding surgeon from the Society of Black Academic Surgeons, the Association of Women Surgeons, or the Surgical Section of the National Medical Association. This annual award is intended to serve as a lasting memorial to the extraordinary life and work of Dr. Organ.

The Organ Traveling Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding young surgeon so they can attend an educational meeting or make an extended visit to an institution of his or her choice, tailored to the awardee’s research interests. The successful applicant will receive the sum of $5,000. This amount is to be used to help defray travel and per diem expenses, plus the cost of any courses the awardee may take in association with the award. The Organ Fellow is required to make his/her own travel arrangements.

The Organ Fellowship is available to a US or Canadian member of the ACS in any of the surgical specialties who meets the following requirements:

  • Is a member of the Society of Black Academic Surgeons, Association of Women Surgeons, or Surgical Section of the National Medical Association
  • Is an ACS Fellow or Associate Fellow
