Funding for Travel to Meetings and Conferences

The Alumni Association offers residents and fellows assistance with travel expenses for meetings and conferences – thanks to the generous support of its loyal members who trained at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. Additional requests for assistance with miscellaneous expenses, such as safety glasses, are occasionally considered.

Funding will be considered after meeting/conference attendance is completed. A maximum of $300 may be granted for a resident/fellow to attend a conference (one per year).

A maximum of $750 may be granted for a resident/fellow to present at a conference (two per year).

Residents/fellows who present at a conference must submit a research manuscript or poster for Postgraduation Recognition Day, which is held at the end of the academic year.
