Current data indicate that there are only 0.5 surgeons for every 100,000 people. Although women make up more than 50 percent of the population, they represent only 7 percent of the surgical work force.
To help address this problem, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA) have developed a scholarship program to support women in surgical residency, help them complete their training, and encourage other women in medicine to consider surgery as a profession.
- The program is open to junior female surgical trainees enrolling in the COSECSA surgical fellowship program
- The usage of this award is to register into the fellowship program
- The scholarship will be administered by the COSECSA secretariat
Each scholarship is worth $500. The number of awards will depend on quality of applications and available funds.
This scholarship is supported by a generous donation from Pon Satitpunwaycha, MD, FACS, the American College of Surgeons Foundation, and the Hellman Grant through the Association of Women Surgeons Foundation.
