The American Council of Academic Plastic Surgeons (ACAPS) is excited to offer ten (10) competitive scholarships to attend the ACAPS 2020 Winter Retreat. The theme of our retreat is "Global Health Education" and we are seeking to bring applicants early in their plastic surgical training who have a strong interest in education and its impact on global health. Applicants should be medical students or residents in their first four years (PGY 1-4) of an integrated program or the first two years (PGY 1-2) of an independent program.
The scholarship will offer $500 for assistance with travel, lodging, and registration to facilitate attendance. Applicants will be selected based on their future potential and impact in plastic surgical global health education. Those who are selected will be initially supplied $400 prior to the retreat and another $100 after they submit a short-written report on their experience with the program.
We are very excited to engage with the future leaders in plastic surgical education and hope attending this retreat will be invigorating and inspiring for them. We look forward to receiving applications from your program and medical school.
