Fellowship program in surgical oncology for European and non European applicants.
Job Description: The Education & Training Committee of ESSO is pleased to offer a number of Training Fellowships to support trainees in Surgical Oncology. The aim of these fellowships is to allow young surgeons to visit a specialist centre, expand their experience and learn new techniques. These fellowships are competitive and applicants require support from the head of their own department as well as from the head of the department they wish to visit.
Up to 10 standard fellowships (value 2,000 EUR each) are granted each year to support a young colleague who wishes to spend 1-3 months at a specialist centre in order to expand his/her clinical or research experience in surgical oncology.
In addition, one major training fellowship (value 10,000 EUR) is intended for a longer period of training (6-12 months). The successful applicant of the Major Fellowship will be invited to summarise this experience in an original article to be posted on the ESSO website. He/she will also be invited to give an oral presentation at the next ESSO congress.
Applicants must be specialist/specializing in surgery (or in any other medical discipline where cancer surgery is performed, i.e. gynaecology).
Applicants must be or become ESSO members.
Applicants must be younger than 40 years.
European applicants may choose to visit European or non-European units, while non-European applicants must choose to visit a European centre.
Application Deadline: 15 October 2010
