This prestigious bursary is awarded to surgical trainees at ST7 or above, or consultants in their first ten years after first appointment, who are based in the UK or Ireland. It is open to the following specialties:
General surgery, including any of the subspecialties (Breast, Colorectal, Upper GI, Hepato-pancreatico-biliary, Endocrine), Vascular, Cardiothoracic, Plastic, Urology, General Paediatric, Transplantation or Military Surgery. The Travelling Surgical Society does not have members in Ophthalmic, EENT, OMFS or Orthopaedic Surgery, so regrettably the award cannot be made to surgeons in these specialties.
The award holder will travel with the Travelling Surgical Society to Madrid 2nd to 9th May 2015. All expenses including travel, accommodation, organized meals and course fees will be met by the society (a value of some £1500). The award holder will deliver two talks during the trip.
Closing date: Friday, 30th January 2015
