The Alex Simpson Smith Travelling Fellowship is an award offered to Senior Surgical Trainees (ST3 or above), or, to newly appointed Consultants (within 5 years of appointment) in any branch of surgery.
This is an opportunity for 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.
On their return, successful applicants will be expected to submit a written report of their experience to the Simpson Smith Trustees and a brief presentation (~5mins) to the audience at the time of the next Simpson Smith lecture. The Fellowships are not intended for use to attend meetings or symposia.
Successful applicants will be notified at the Alex Simpson Memorial Lecture to be given at the London Surgical Symposium on the 16th October 2019.
HOW TO APPLY?
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.
