6th Annual Resident Advocate Leadership Competition

The Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS) will sponsor one surgery resident to attend the 2017 ACS Leadership Conference and Advocacy Summit, which will be held May 6-9, 2017 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC. The recipient will be reimbursed for his/her travel expenses and registration.

To be considered for the MCACS competition, the resident must be in an ACGME-approved Massachusetts surgery residency training program, and submit a brief essay on why he/she wants to attend the conference and the role of advocacy in health care. The statement should be limited to 1 typed page (double spaced, 12 point font). Essays, along with the residentsí CVs, should be submitted by email to the MCACS administrative offices. The deadline for entries is Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

The winning essay will be posted on the MCACS website, www.mcacs.org. In addition to attending the conference, the recipient will be expected to give a presentation at the MCACS 2017 Chapter Lobby Day that will take place in Boston. He/she will also be invited to give a report at the May 2017 MCACS Council meeting. Any resident who submits an essay for consideration will automatically be invited to become a member of the Massachusetts Chapter of the ACS. If you have any questions about the competition, please contact the MCACS administrative offices by phone at 978-927-8330 or by email.
