ALSGBI has generously funded a scholarship in memory of David Dunn. This scholarship is to the value of £4,000 and it is anticipated that this would enable a surgeon at the end of his/her training, or a consultant within 5 years of appointment, to make a substantial visit to a unit abroad to learn new skills in laparoscopic surgery, with a view to introducing these skills into his/her practice for the benefit of patients. The successful applicant will be expected to give a report on their visit at an ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting and also write a report for the ALSGBI Newsletter.
The ALSGBI in partnership with B. Braun Medical Ltd is also awarding two Aesculap Endoscopy Travelling Scholarships of £2,000 each. The purpose of these scholarships is to enable surgeons in training, or young consultants within 5 years of appointment, to extend their experience in minimal access surgery by short visits to one or more centres. The successful applicants will be expected to produce a brief report of their visit at a meeting of the ALSGBI and also write a report for the ALSGBI Newsletter.
Candidates for these scholarships should request an application form from Mrs Jennifer Treglohan, Executive Director, ALSGBI at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, 35-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PE or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and be a current member of ALSGBI. The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 13 October 2017. The names of successful applicants will be announced at the ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting on Friday 10th November.
