ESSO Training Fellowships to support trainees in Surgical Oncology

The ESSO Education Committee offers a number of Training Fellowships to support trainees in Surgical Oncology.

The aim is to
  • allow young surgeons to visit a specialist centre outside of their own country,
  • help them expand their experience and learn new techniques.
The Education and Training Committee grants two types of fellowships each year:
•    8 standard training fellowships (value 2.000 EUR): from 1 to 3 months
•    1 major training fellowship (value 10.000 EUR): from 4 to 12 months

The ETC Fellowship reserves the right to split the major fellowship if 2 candidates are judged to be of equal merit.
The following apply to both types of fellowships:

•    The traineeship period should occur within one year following the deadline for application.
•    The Fellowship position must NOT be salaried.
•    The Fellowship must take place in a country other than the applicant’s current place of training.

All successful fellows will be expected to write a report about their experience and provide a testimonial and pictures for publication on the ESSO website within 3 months of return from the fellowship.

The successful applicant of the Major Fellowship will further be invited to give an oral presentation at the next ESSO congress.

Who can apply? 
  • Applicants must be a specialist, trainee or junior doctor with a declared intention of specialising in a sub-specialty of surgical oncology (breast, upper GI,  hepatobiliary and pancreatic, colorectal, endocrine, head and neck, thoracic, skin cancer and melanoma, gynaecology, urology, sarcoma). 
  • Applicants must be or become ESSO members before the start date of the award. 
  • Applicants must be younger than 40 years of age. 
  • Both European and non-European citizens can apply. European applicants may choose to visit European or non-European units, while non-European applicants must choose to visit a European centre. 
  • Previous Fellowship recipients will be ineligible to apply for a second award.
