Residents and Fellows: Don’t Miss Your Chance to Travel to Washington, D.C., to Make a Difference for Your Profession and Patients

ASCRS and Young Eye Surgeons (YES) are excited to announce the return of the ASCRS/YES Legislative Fly-In Scholarship Program to encourage U.S. resident and fellow members of ASCRS to attend the 2017 Alliance of Specialty Medicine Fly-In, July 17–19 on Capitol Hill. Each year, ASCRS joins 13 other medical specialty societies that make up the Alliance of Specialty Medicine to bring physicians across the country to Washington, D.C., to advocate for our policy priorities. Five applicants will be chosen to receive a full scholarship (registration, travel, hotel accommodations, and meals) to join their peers in the nation’s capital and meet with their members of Congress to advocate for policies that will impact their careers and help their patients. This event not only helps residents and fellows develop their understanding of policy issues, but it provides an opportunity to network with established members and ASCRS leadership.

For more information and to apply, download the 2017 ASCRS/YES Legislative Fly-In Scholarship Program application. Applications must be submitted by March 31 for consideration.
