The ALSGBI is funding 2 special bursaries for overseas candidates this year. Each bursary is to the value of GBP 1500 and is intended for a surgeon at the end of his/her training, or a consultant within 5 years of appointment, to come to our ASM in the UK in early December to learn new skills and concepts in laparoscopic surgery, with a view to introducing these skills into his/her practice for the benefit of patients.
The successful applicants will be expected to write a report on their visit to the ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting for the next 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 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and be current members of the ALSGBI. The deadline for receipt of applications is Monday 15th October 2018. The successful applicants will be notified by Monday 29th October.
