The Kansas Rural Health Options Project is providing 20 scholarships up to $1,000 for rural physicians to participate in the Advanced Trauma Life Support course. These scholarships will be provided to qualified applicants on need as well as on a first-come, first-serve basis. Early applications are encouraged with applications received by April 15, 2011 receiving higher priority. It is expected that the scholarships will be used prior to December 31, 2011.
Interested individuals should submit a formal letter of request that includes the physician’s name and email address, license number, course and hospital name along with the attached request form to Dan Leong, Director, Emergency Preparedness; Kansas Hospital Association; 215 SE 8th Avenue; Topeka KS 66603.
