The ALSGBI is funding a scholarship in memory of the late Mr David Dunn, a Past President of the ALSGBI. 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.
B. Braun Medical Ltd in partnership with the ALSGBI is also awarding two Aesculap 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 scholars are also requested to share their experience with the B. Braun Endosurgical team upon completion.
The successful applicants will be expected to give a report on their visit at an ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting and also write an article 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 current members of ALSGBI. The deadline
for receipt of applications is Thursday 1 November 2018. The successful applicants will be announced at the 2018 ALSGB I Annual Scientific Meeting on Thursday 6 December.
