Young Physician Massingill Scholarship

The Massingill Family Scholarship 

Purpose: This scholarship will support one annual attendee to the Robert C. Cefalo Leadership Institute, located at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  The successful applicant must demonstrate an interest in family planning and advocacy. The scholarship includes course fees, meals, pre-and post-testing, as well as lodging and a stipend for ground transportation, as per ACOG’s travel guidelines.
Description/Criteria: Working in and advocating for family planning requires leadership skills that may not be taught in medical school.  The Robert C. Cefalo Leadership Institute provides invaluable training on how to build a team, break down complex issues for the public, and how to speak with the media. In a follow-up study, 96% of attendees felt that they had made changes in their communication and leadership approaches based on their experience in the course. Take your skills to the next level by applying for a scholarship today. This scholarship is open to young physicians (ACOG Fellows who have been Fellows eight years or less) who can demonstrate an interest in family planning and advocacy. 
See website for current dates and details.  Application, curriculum vitae and letter of recommendation are required.
