Cutlers' Surgical Fellowship
Currently closed. Re-opens September 2024
The Worshipful Company of Cutlers’ Surgical Fellowship is to allow fellows and members of the Royal College of Surgeons working in hospitals throughout the UK to undertake a period of time overseas to learn a surgical technique, procedure or treatment which they can then practice on their return to the UK to benefit NHS patients.
The value of this fellowship is up to £10,000 to cover costs related to travel and accommodation. Particular emphasis in determining the recipient of this fellowship is placed on the career progress of the applicant to date, their CV, the opportunities provided at the centre of excellence where the fellowship will be undertaken, the innovative qualities of the skills to be learnt and how gaining such skills will be applied in the UK for the benefit for patient care.

- Application form
