Moynihan Travelling Fellowship
Applications are now closed.
The Association’s prestigious Moynihan Travelling Fellowship, up to the value of £5,000, is available annually by open competition to Specialist Registrars towards the end of higher surgical training, or Consultants within five years of appointment at the closing date of application. The Fellowship is intended to enable the successful candidate to broaden their education and to present and discuss their contribution to British and Irish surgery overseas. It is not appropriate, however, that the award be used as part-funding for an off-service year of training.
Candidates must be residents of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland but need not be Fellows or Affiliate Fellows of the Association; however, they should be engaged in general surgery or in one of its specialties. A full Curriculum Vitae should be submitted giving full details of past and present appointments and publications, together with a detailed account of the proposed programme of travel, costs involved and objectives to be achieved.
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by the Association’s Scientific Committee. The Committee will pay particular attention to originality, scope and feasibility of the proposed itinerary. The successful candidate will be expected to act as an ambassador for British and Irish surgery and should be fully acquainted with the aims and objectives of the Association of Surgeons and its role in surgery. After the Fellowship, the successful candidate will be required to provide a written report of their Fellowship for inclusion in the Association’s Journal, and to address the ASGBI International Surgical Congress.
