Applications are invited for the Alex Simpson Smith Travelling Fellowships. These awards are offered to senior surgical trainees (ST3 or above), or to newly appointed consultants (within 5 years of appointment) in any branch of surgery.

 

The Fellowships are intended to allow candidates to visit centres of excellence abroad, in order to obtain further experience or training within their speciality, currently not available in the UK. Preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate that their visit will make a significant contribution to their surgical training. Financial support typically includes all travel and accommodation expenses.

The Fellowships are not intended for use to attend meetings or symposia.

Applicants wishing to apply should submit a brief outline of their proposed visit, stating the centre they wish to visit and explaining how this will enhance their training. An estimate of their proposed travelling costs and expenses should be attached together with a copy of their CV. Approval of their supervising Consultants for this visit should also be shown.

INSTRUMENTS.jpg

The London Surgical Symposium is run by Imperial College London. It is a pan London meeting and it aims to deliver high quality, definitive lectures on important and controversial topics in surgery. It is inclusive, and we strongly encourage trainees, health professionals allied to surgery and clinical researchers in surgery to submit their work. We accept clinical audits as well as original research. 

 

A major purpose of this program is to create a social and professional network of surgeons and clinicians across London surgery and we welcome those from all hospitals both internationally and nationally.

 

We believe that the most important conversations often occur before or after the meeting and we encourage you to join the debate with us using #LSS2016. 

 

The meeting is coordinated by Mr. James Kinross, a senior lecturer and consultant in colorectal surgery. We would like to thank Caroline Hurley, Kathleen Ellis, Simon Erridge, Uddhav Vaghela and Tony Tarragona-Fiol in particular for their help in delivering this meeting.
