ESSKA-APKASS DJO Travelling Fellowship 2022
Register Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

This is an international exchange programme for promising young orthopaedic surgeons. It is run in collaboration with the Asia-Pacific Knee, Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Society (APKASS). Those selected, we believe, will become future leaders in their field. The aim of the fellowship is to bring them into contact with the best of their peers, those on another continent. The three chosen Fellows, accompanied by a ‘godfather’, travel extensively for three weeks in Asia.
