Applications are invited for these travelling fellowships, which are funded by a donation from Dr Geraint James in memory of his wife, Dame Sheila Sherlock. Their purpose is to offer consultants and trainees the opportunity to learn new techniques and acquire new experiences, ideas and stimulation through travel and the exchange of ideas.

Two travelling fellowships are available, covering a period of one month each, and will be offered to one consultant and one trainee. Each fellowship will be for a maximum of £2,000, with the recipients being responsible for funding any additional costs.


You must have current memberbership of the RCP.
