One of the important missions of the International Association of Endocrine Surgeons is to disseminate Endocrine Surgery education throughout the world.
In addition to the direct efforts of the IAES through the semiannual meetings, World Journal of Surgery publications and other work, the IAES can partner with other groups to support endocrine surgery education. To the extent that IAES financial resources allow, the Council can authorize support of educational meetings through travel support for attendees, travel support for IAES speakers or seed funding for planned meetings.
The application, which can be downloaded below, is deliberately simple. Any additional detail about the meeting in the accompanying letter and program will be helpful in assessing the application. Requests will be judged based upon the extent to which the proposed activity contributes to the missions of the IAES, the extent to which the activity is engaged with the IAES through member participation in the planning or execution of the meeting, and the availability of funds.
Thank you, and we at the Education Committee and the IAES Council look forward to supporting your proposals for partnership in Endocrine Surgery Education.
