Looking to the Future Scholarship Program
STS is now accepting applications for the 2019 Looking to the Future Scholarship Program. The 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 deadline to submit application materials is 11:59 p.m. CDT, Friday, September 21, 2018.
The Residents Symposium at the STS Annual Meeting provides practical early career information and an opportunity to ask questions in small group discussions led by experienced surgeons. The 2018 session included talks related to private practice and academic career pathways, the mechanics of finding a job, negotiating a contract, building a successful clinical practice, early career development, what you need to know about finances, and achieving a successful work/life balance.
