About ESSKA Fellowships

Fellowships form an important part of ESSKA’s educational work.

They are mostly intended for young surgeons, improving their skills by placing them in the best teaching centres, and under the best practitioners. Several fellowships, however, are designed for experienced surgeons.

ESSKA sincerely appreciates the sponsors' support of the scientific programme,

 travel and accommodation for the fellowships and the host teaching centres for their support of the social programmes.

You are welcome to apply for more than one fellowship.

  • speak English fluently
  • make yourself available for the duration of the Fellowship
