International Travel Grant
The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery’s purpose of existence is to promote, encourage, foster and advance the art and science of microsurgical and other complex reconstructions. To do this the organization has established a forum for teaching, research and free discussion of reconstructive microsurgical methods and principles. Yearly, the ASRM holds a scientific annual meeting which has a longstanding tradition of presenting cutting edge topics in microsurgery, panel discussions, and instructional courses applicable to the clinician as well as the researcher.
The organization is continually aware of the financial hardship that has affected several surgeons in underdeveloped countries and believes that it is part of their obligation to microneurovascular surgery to not make it prohibitive for these individual’s to continue their education in this ever growing specialty. This initiative is important in our world society and global health.
The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery is offering an opportunity to surgeons from underdeveloped countries that are experiencing financial hardship. The grant covers three nights lodging at the host hotel in addition to the ASRM Annual Meeting general registration fee. It will be up to the recipient to cover the additional expenses including transportation.
