This scholarship was designed to support an HSS resident attending a course in Professional Leadership to encourage his or her advancement in becoming an academic clinician in the field of musculoskeletal medicine. The Alumni Association believes it is important for residents to master both clinical and non-clinical skills. The Alumni Affairs Committee has identified three programs that support mid-level residents’ development of essential non-clinical skills that will be critical to their success as senior level residents and practicing clinicians, including the skills necessary to be more effective teachers and more successful leaders.
The scholarship will be granted annually to a qualified PGY4 to attend one of the three following programs: the ACGME Multi-specialty Leadership Skills Training Program, the ACS Residents as Teachers and Leaders Course, or the AOA Resident Leadership Forum. Scholarship recipient will be able to determine preference.
