Looking to the Future Scholarship Program
The STS Looking to the Future Scholarship Program seeks to encourage general surgery residents and medical students who are considering, but not yet committed to, a career in cardiothoracic surgery. Scholarships include registration fees for the STS Annual Meeting, a 3-night stay at an STS-designated hotel, participation in exclusive events, and reimbursement of up to $500 in related travel expenses.
The Residents Symposium at the STS Annual Meeting practical early career information and an opportunity to ask questions in small group discussions led by experienced surgeons. The 2017 session included talks related to private practice and academic career pathways, the mechanics of finding a job, what one needs to know about finances, building a successful clinical practice, early career development and achieving a successful work/life balance.
