The Western Thoracic Surgical Association is now accepting applications for its 2019 Traveling Fellowship for Residents, Trainees, and Practicing Surgeons, the goal of which is to promote interaction and learning between residents / trainees / practicing surgeons and WTSA members. The traveling fellow will visit a University-affiliated or academic practice of his/her choosing, within the boundaries of the WTSA, for a period of one to two weeks, under the sponsorship of a Western member at the hosting institution. The traveling fellow does not need to be a WTSA member; the award is open to any resident / trainee / practicing surgeon. A stipend of up to 5,000 USD will be provided to the traveling fellow, to defray reasonable costs for travel, lodging, and meals, with expenses reimbursed upon receipt of the fellow’s final written report and summary of expenses.

The WTSA is seeking support to ensure the long-term viability of the Postgraduate course as well as other educational activities offered at the Annual Meeting. To achieve this goal, the Western has established the 21st Century Founders Fund. To support the creation of the unrestricted 21st Century Founders Fund, the WTSA Council is asking each Association member to consider a generous donation of 1000 USD. This may be in the form of either a single 1000 USD donation, or one 500 USD donation with a pledge to give an additional 500 USD within the next calendar year. Those who donate 1000 USD will be gratefully acknowledged in perpetuity as members of the 21st Century Founders Club on the WTSA website and at the Annual Meeting via ribbons, signage, and Program Book listings. You may donate online by credit card through the Members Only Area; you may also donate by credit card via secure fax or by check by downloading the Contribution Form.
