Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society
The Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society (ACCES) has a mission to promote the clinical engineering profession within the healthcare community and to support clinical engineering professionals working in Atlantic Canada. As such, ACCES is invested in developing and promoting opportunities for continuing education, personal growth, and certification amongst its members.
In keeping with its mission, ACCES has created two $500 bursaries. Each bursary will be awarded yearly to an ACCES member with a Regular Membership in good standing for the last two consecutive years, or to a person considered immediate family* of that ACCES member, who is attending a course or program at a post secondary institution in North America and is experiencing financial need. Applicants must be in good academic standing.
The ideal candidates will be pursuing studies in a field related to clinical engineering or healthcare, will have worked or be intending to work in clinical engineering, and will be leaders in their community, capable of promoting or advancing the clinical engineering profession within Atlantic Canada.
All potential candidates are encouraged to apply regardless of their field of study or work history, but preference will be accorded to those potential candidates directly studying or working in a field related to clinical engineering.
Applicants will be scored on their field of study, work history, academic standing, community involvement, and financial need.
* For the purposes of the selection process for this Bursary, immediate family is defined as: spouse or common-law partner, parents, siblings, and children, where family ties can be either direct, in-law, adoptive, half, or step. ACCES reserves the right to request proof of relationship at any time during the selection process.
