Global Alliance Partnership (GAP) Application Form

The James Warden Global Alliance Partnership (GAP) is a unique collaborative program supported by PAPS members, designed to assist colleagues in underserved areas with a unique educational experience.

Candidates must reside and practice in a low- or middle-income country, as defined annually by the World Bank.  They must have completed their pediatric surgery training prior to applying.

PAPS prefers that candidates seek a PAPS member to nominate them for the GAP program. Nominations of candidates can be made to the GAP Chair by any PAPS member in good standing. Candidates can also directly ask the GAP Chair to nominate them if they do not know any PAPS members.

The candidate should not have the resources to provide his/her own funding to attend the meeting.

PAPS shall provide to the GAP Fellow(s) the following:   Registration for the annual meeting, roundtrip economy airfare to the meeting and any arranged observership sponsored by the Local Organizing Committee either before or after the meeting, hotel room and meal expenses for the meeting and observership, USD$500 GAP Scholarship, and a textbook of choice.  In addition, membership to PAPS shall be granted without fees for a period of 5 years following the meeting.

Each GAP Fellow shall be expected to deliver a presentation at the Annual Meeting. He/she shall be asked to submit the title and short summary of his/her presentation to the GAP Chair and the Program Committee Chair one month prior to the Annual Meeting. He/she shall also be encouraged to submit an abstract to the scientific program if he/she so wishes; however, such abstract shall be judged using similar criteria as all submitted abstracts.

Expenses for family members are not provided.

About Us

Despite PAPS being one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world, we share a strong sense of family with fellow members and guests.  We have a lot of fun at meetings, and are much more relaxed than any other surgical society. We don't even allow neckties at any PAPS meeting....wear one and it will be quickly cut off!

Join PAPS to share ideas and meet great new friends!
