ABMS Visiting Scholars Program
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Visiting Scholars Program is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 class. Junior faculty, residents/fellows, individuals holding advanced degrees in public health, health services research, and other relevant disciplines are invited to apply to participate in this exciting and dynamic, one-year, part-time program facilitating research projects related to Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification. In addition to the research project, scholars are exposed to the fields of professional assessment and education, health policy, and quality improvement and are offered the opportunity to develop leadership skills critical to their own professional growth and success. For the past two years, the ABOS has partnered with the ABMS to support an ABMS-ABOS Scholar. These Scholars have been orthopaedic surgery residents and fellows. We are interested in having an orthopaedic surgeon participate in next year's program as well. The application deadline is May 1, 2017. For more information about the program and the application process, go to abms.org or email ABMSVisitingScholars@abms.org.
