APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. The following information is for reference only.

The ESCP is delighted to announce a change in the fellowship schedule for the forthcoming year 2015-2016. Applications have now closed for three distinctive types of fellowships:

  • 2 x six month fellowships
  • 4 x three month fellowships
  • 4 x two-four week observerships

The aim of these fellowships is to assist European surgeons currently training in coloproctology to undertake a visit to a centre in a different country in Europe. Preference will be given to applications to travel to a different region within Europe.

ESCP will award the 4 three-month fellowship and 4 observership places on a regional basis:

  • One place for an applicant from ESCP’s Eastern region
  • One place for an applicant from ESCP’s Western region
  • One place for an applicant from ESCP’s Central region
  • One place for an applicant from outside of Europe

(for information on the ESCP regions please see point 2 of the rules)

The 2 six-month fellowships will be awarded following an interview process at ESCP Dublin in September 2015.
