Through the RACS Visitor Grant Program, societies or associations of surgeons can be supported to enhance their scientific meetings by inviting scientific visitors from Australia, New Zealand and internationally. RACS is committed to excellence in surgical education and practice and recognises that Fellows within sub-specialties and other groups wish to strengthen their programs.
Groups are invited to apply for funding towards the cost of travel, accommodation and registration for their 2020 visitor(s). Applications are open to any recognised society or association of surgeons.
Applications for meetings in 2021
Applications for meetings in 2021 will be accepted between 27 January and 16 March 2020.
