EMST senior instructor scholarship

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons has a strong history of involvement in trauma prevention and management. The Emergency Management of Severe Trauma (EMST) instructor scholarship will be awarded to a senior instructor or director in the EMST program, to travel overseas to attend an Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course and/or further their trauma experience by visiting an international trauma centre. Through this focus on clinical experience, the senior instructor or director will be able to further develop their knowledge and skills in trauma care and gain information relevant to the College's EMST program. The scholarship is awarded in recognition of the significant pro bono work that the EMST faculty contributes to the training programs of the College each year.


EMST senior instructors or directors are eligible to apply for EMST instructor scholarship. Please fill out and return the application form (Word) which should include a clear plan of the proposed visit, emphasising the benefits to be gained.


The Scholarship will be awarded as either:

  • a developing country travel grant, with the objective of reviewing the delivery and organisation of an ATLS program in a developing country
  • an international instruction travel grant, where the successful applicant visits an international trauma centre and instructs on an ATLS course in a developing/non-first world country with the objective of investigating and comparing the international ATLS program in a developing/non-first world country with the EMST program.
