Resident/Fellow Grant to Attend 2016 JAC: Applications Due December 31, 2015
The 11th Annual AUA/AACU Urology Joint Advocacy Conference will take place February 28 - March 1, 2016 at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, DC. The meeting is urology’s health policy “main event.” The agenda features talks by members of Congress and key policy makers who will shape the regulatory future of medicine. It also affords attendees the chance to meet with members of Congress from their home state to advocate for urology’s current policy initiatives. To review details of the 2015 program to get a sense of what the 2016 program will entail visit the JAC website.
The New England Section will fund the trip of 2 residents or fellows in 2016 to attend the 11th Annual JAC, as it recognizes that engagement of young urologists in urologic advocacy is important to the specialty. To apply for this funded trip, residents and fellows should submit their contact information, a 1-page essay outlining their interest in urology/healthcare policy and advocacy and how attending the 11th Annual JAC would support their interest and future aspirations at the link below. A brief letter from resident or fellow’s Program Director confirming that if selected s/he will be able to attend the 2016 JAC conference in DC should also be submitted. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2015.
SUBMIT YOUR ESSAY
After the conference, the participants will be asked to submit a 1-page summary of his/her experience at the JAC for the NEAUA website and newsletter.
