2013 Donald B. Doty Educational Award
The Western is pleased to announce that Medtronic is once again supporting the Donald B. Doty Educational Award in 2013. The purpose of the award is twofold:
- To foster innovative educational initiatives in cardiothoracic surgery by WTSA members; and
- To provide an opportunity for the dissemination of this information to other training centers and academic institutions.
Active and Senior WTSA members in good standing are eligible to apply, and must submit a completed Award Application to the WTSA Administrative Offices no later than the extended deadline of April 30, 2013.. Following the review of applications by the WTSA Council, the successful applicant will be notified and awarded an education grant of $10,000. It is expected that the activities associated with the award will be completed by June 15, 2014, and that the awardee will provide both a written summary report as well as a brief oral report at the time of the 2014 WTSA Annual Meeting, June 25 – 28, 2014, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California.
