RACS is committed to excellence in surgical education and practice and recognised that Fellows within sub-specialties and other groups wish to enhance their annual scientific meetings by inviting scientific visitors of note, from Australia, New Zealand and internationally. RACS will support these initiatives through the RACS Visitor Grant Program.
Groups are invited to apply for funding towards the cost of travel, accommodation and registration for their 2022 visitor(s). Applications are open to any recognised society or association of surgeons.
Applications for meetings in 2022
Applications for meetings in 2022 will be accepted between 1 February and 31 March 2021. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications in late June 2021.
