This program is open to applicants who have completed a minimum of 2 years of general surgical residency or have finished surgical residency. The applicant must be an Associate member of the American College of Surgeons and in good standing with the College. As the Clinical Scholars work closely with the ACS staff and need to complete coursework, it is required that the Clinical Scholar reside in Chicago for the duration of the fellowship.
