ACPGBI Travelling Fellowship for African Surgeons 2024

The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland (ACPGBI) has introduced a unique opportunity – the ACPGBI Travelling Fellowship, aimed at fostering collaboration among surgeons from low and middle-income countries and ACPGBI members. This fellowship provides the chance for a general surgeon from an LMIC to visit two hospitals in the United Kingdom and participate in the ACPGBI Annual Meeting. Administered by the ACPGBI, this fellowship will be publicized on the ACPGBI website and through surgical societies in LMICs and other Global Surgery platforms.


The ACPGBI Travelling Fellowship offers significant benefits, including a grant of up to £5000 to cover travel, accommodation, and meal expenses. Recipients will need to present a detailed itinerary before receiving funds and submit a report on their visit upon completion. The fellowship is open to practising general surgeons in low or middle-income countries, as per the World Bank Classification, with applicants required to provide a CV and names of two referees. The selection process involves key deadlines, such as the application deadline on March 31, 2024, notification of successful applicants by April 10, submission of complete itinerary by May 15, and the report deadline by September 30.


To apply for the ACPGBI Travelling Fellowship, interested candidates must prepare to visit hospitals in the UK, attend the ACPGBI Annual Meeting, submit an abstract for presentation, and partake in an interview during the selection process. This fellowship not only provides a valuable educational experience but also promotes international networking and collaboration within the surgical community. For further information and application details, individuals are encouraged to visit the ACPGBI website.
