The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) and the International Relations Committee offer International ACS NSQIP Scholarships for three surgeons from countries other than the U.S. or Canada who demonstrate a strong interest in surgical quality improvement. The scholarships, in the amount of $10,000 each, allow the Scholars to attend the annual ACS Quality and Safety Conference and to meet with Program Leadership and Surgeon Champions from ACS NSQIP-participating hospitals. Following the conference, the candidate is encouraged to visit one or two hospitals reflecting the candidate’s specific clinical interests. The hospitals chosen by the scholars should also have strong quality programs.
The scholarships provide successful applicants with the privilege of participating in the Quality and Safety Conference. Assistance will be provided in arranging hotel accommodations in the conference city.
