The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) is accepting online applications for the 2018 AANS International Visiting Surgeon Fellowship now through Aug. 1, 2017.
The AANS International Visiting Surgeon Fellowship is an initiative to assist colleagues in developing countries with an educational experience at a North American neurosurgical training program. The length of the fellowship is typically three months, and recipients receive a monthly stipend of $2,000 for up to three months ($6,000 maximum) plus round-trip coach airfare to the fellowship location.
Applicants must be neurosurgeons or neurosurgeons-in-training in a developing country as defined by the World Bank. Applicants should be on staff at a local hospital (and preferably medical school), involved in neurosurgical patient care and neurosurgical education.
The recipient must begin the visit by April 28, 2018. If recipients can schedule their visits to coincide with the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting, the AANS will pay for the fellow’s registration, housing and transportation to attend. The 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in New Orleans, April 28-May 2.
Additional details on the eligibility of applicants and the selection process are posted on the AANS website.
