Looking to the Future Scholarship Program
The application process for the 2021 STS Looking to the Future Scholarship Program will open in summer 2020.
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 offers practical early career information and an opportunity to ask questions in small group discussions led by experienced surgeons. The 2020 Symposium included talks related to the modern cardiothoracic surgery practice landscape, key steps to finding a job, negotiating contracts in academic and private practice settings, early career development, achieving financial security, and navigating work/life balance. All views and opinions expressed therein are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Society.
