The 2017 BSET Travel Fellowship, up to the value of £5,000, is available to Specialist Registrars towards the end of higher surgical training or Consultants up to two years post CCT at the closing date for this application. The Fellowship is intended to enable the successful candidate to fund a visit to a unit with recognised expertise of interest to broaden their education and training in endovascular therapy. 

Applications should provide a detailed account of the proposed programme of travel, costs involved and objectives to be achieved during the Fellowship, supported by a full Curriculum Vitae giving details of all past and present appointments and publications.

The Fellowship Committee will pay particular attention to originality, scope and feasibility of the proposed itinerary. 

Priority will be given to those with a dedicated plan rather than “additional” funding for a pre-arranged secondment.

Candidates must be Members of BSET and engaged in endovascular surgery.  The successful candidate will be expected to act as an ambassador for BSET and should be fully acquainted with the aims and objectives of the Association and its role in endovascular therapy.

After the Fellowship, the successful candidate will be required to provide a written report of their Fellowship for inclusion on BSET’s website, and to address BSET’s 2018 Annual Meeting.  A critical appraisal of the Centre visited, together with an assessment of how the experience will enhance future personal and professional development, should form the basis of the report.

The deadline for applications for the 2017 BSET Travel Fellowship is Monday 27th February (5pm).

Interviews will be held on Thursday 30th March at Tortworth Court Hotel, South Gloucestershire.
