Travelling Fellowship Call for Abstracts
$5,000 SUGSS Medtronic Travelling Fellowship
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity, afforded by Medtronic (the long-term partner and major sponsor of the Sydney Upper GI Surgical Society), to expand your horizons and increase your profile.
IMPORTANT! This is a great opportunity and we encourage all fellows, registrars, younger consultants and residents to participate.
Open to consultants within their first four years of practice - fellows, registrars, and residents who are planning a career in Upper GI surgery, this scholarship is planned to facilitate travel to expedite the learning of new techniques and processes to which you would not normally be exposed.
Any candidates interested are required to send an original abstract for a five minute presentation at the SUGSS meeting and an accompanying covering letter outlining as to how they would like to use the $5,000 travelling fellowship, and anything further you think will increase your merit!
Nominees will be judged by a panel based on the quality of the planned 4 minute presented paper and their plans for use of the travelling scholarship. Previous recipients have used their prize to support a visit of several renowned international units, often with concomitant international conference attendance.
The prize winner will also be invited back to a future SUGSS conference to talk on their experiences and an associated Upper GI topic.
