Guest Assistance Program (GAP)

James Warden MD was responsible for establishing the James Warden Guest Assistance Program for the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons. Dr. Warden realized the need for young pediatric surgeons in developing countries to be exposed to the current science and art of pediatric surgery. He conceived of the idea that the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons could sponsor young surgeons to attend the annual meeting. The program began in 1989 assisting surgeons from Pacific Rim countries and continues today through the generosity of donations from PAPS members and most recently with assistance from the Scinto Foundation.

Pediatric surgeons in developing countries of the Pacific Rim with limited financial resources are eligible for this program. The program provides registration, accommodation, meals and travel expenses to a PAPS conference and externship to the local children's hospital. A five-year PAPS membership and a pediatric surgery textbook are included. Expenses for family members is not provided.
