AHPBA North and South American Annual Traveling Fellowship

The 2017 North and South American Traveling Fellowship application is now closed. Recipients will be notified in September 2016.

Instructions for the 2018 North and South American Traveling Fellowship Awards are available below.


Submission Deadline: July 1, 2017

Fellowships are open to members of the AHPBA. The North American Fellowship is open to members residing in North America and supports travel to South America (vice versa for the South American Fellowship).

The goal of the fellowships is to encourage interaction, exchange of ideas, and collaboration between HPB surgeons in North and South America.

Each fellowship is $5,000, and is to be used to offset the costs of travel and accommodation for the Traveling Fellow. Successful applicants are to travel for 1 week to an HPB center in South or North America. Three travel awards are available.

To apply, applicants should submit the following materials to ahpba@lp-etc.com:

  • One-page summary outlining their activities and goals of travel to an identified HPB program
  • CV
  • One Letter of support from the institution that they plan to travel

The final choice will be made in August and selected recipients will receive their travel stipend upon notification. Travel must be completed by January 31, 2018. A brief report must be submitted in writing to the AHPBA Executive Council following the fellowship, to be included in the AHPBA newsletter. Winners will also be recognized during the 2017 annual meeting.

Interested applicants should contact potential sites they are interested in. Applications should be submitted to the Research Committee at ahpba@lp-etc.com by July 1, 2017.
