This travel grant aims to increase women and minority participation in academic surgery. The AAS Fall Courses will provide pearls of wisdom and discuss advances in research methods, academic career advancement, grant writing, as well as incorporate interactive sessions where participants can discuss their ideas with academic surgical leaders and network with colleagues.
Six travel awards will be made to residents, fellows, or faculty-level attendees who are female, and or from underrepresented minorities, funded by an NIH R13 grant.
