The ACAPS Global Health Committee is in its second year of sponsoring a scholarship opportunity for an educational exchange at an international site. This program will support travel-related expenses for a U.S faculty member and plastic surgery resident or fellow to visit an international training program. The overarching goal of this short trip is to disseminate and implement aspects of the US graduate medical education paradigm.
Participants are expected to develop a curriculum that will address deficiencies in plastic surgery education and patient care in hosting programs. The ultimate goal is to develop established collaboration between US and international training programs with long term relationships and ongoing educational exchange. Scholarship recipients will receive $5,000 to cover travel expenses and support the educational activities. A list of participating international training programs will be provided.
