Travelling Fellowships

 

The Alban Barros D'Sa Memorial Travelling Fellowship in General Surgery

The Alban Barros D'Sa Travelling Scholarship allows those starting out in their surgical careers to attend education events which would otherwise be out with their grasp. The Scholarship was generously donated by the family of the late Alban Barros D’Sa, Fellow and Examiner at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Mr Barros D’Sa’s interest was in supporting surgeons in training, and the scholarship will provide up to £1,000 towards attending international educational meetings and conferences.

Applications for the Alban Barros D’Sa Memorial Travelling Fellowship are invited from Members or Fellows of the College, in good standing, who are Higher Surgical Trainees who have not yet attained Consultant grade. The Fellowship provides funding for travel abroad to gain further experience/training.

The funding for this Fellowship contributes in part, or in whole, to the cost of one period of study/attachment. You must itemise the various costs of your proposed Travelling Fellowship. Funding for £1,000 only will be considered. Funding sought above this level will lead to disqualification of application.
