The American College of Surgeons is offering two-year faculty research fellowships, through the generosity of Fellows, Chapters, and friends of the College, to surgeons entering academic careers in surgery or a surgical specialty. The fellowship is to assist a surgeon in the establishment of their research program under mentorship with the goal of transitioning to becoming an independent investigator. Applicants should have demonstrated their potential to work as independent investigators. The fellowship award is $40,000 per year for each of two years, to support the research.
This fellowship honors Franklin H. Martin, MD, FACS, founder of the American College of Surgeons.
This fellowship honors C. James Carrico, MD, FACS, and is designated for research in trauma and critical care.
An open call for applications will begin in October. The closing date for receipt of completed applications and all supporting documents is December 15.
