AO Fellowship Programme - Host Centres

Bob Handley has for some time talked about the concept of a Faculty Fellowship and at the Board of Management and at the AGM this year we agreed on and are now launching the concept.

The idea of this is for some financial support for AOUK&I members who are considering peer-to-peer visiting fellowships within the UK. The idea is to assist with reasonable travelling expenses and accommodation costs for a visit of between two and five days. The only feedback that we would require would be a brief written report from both the visiting fellow and the host centre.

We anticipate up to ten such fellowships being available each year and if you are interested in this please contact me directly by e-mail or through the website. The is a very exciting opportunity, and many of us belive that type of visit is a critical part of further professional development after consultant appointment.
