Society of 67 Scholars Award for Pathology Residents and Medical Students

Purpose

The Society of ’67 Scholars Program provides an opportunity for medical students and/or residents to familiarize themselves with career opportunities in pathology and the critical role of pathology in healthcare delivery, research, and education through access to national leaders in academic pathology attending the APC Annual Meeting.

2020 Scholars Program

The 2020 Society of '67 Scholars will:

  • receive an immersive experience in how innovative medical education and practice approaches are being developed in academic pathology;
  • understand efforts to communicate the value of pathologists and laboratory medicine to different stakeholders in the health care system and patient communities; and
  • interact with the leaders of academic pathology, bringing a trainee’s perspective to the Association, and thus helping to influence the direction of the organization.

NEW IN 2020: Departments of Pathology must cover travel expenses (air, ground, non-conference meals, etc.) for the recipient(s) selected to the Scholars Program from your institution. The Society of ’67 will provide Meeting Registration, which covers meals offered during the program, and lodging at the Hotel Del Coronado for 3 nights, including all taxes.
