RACS Rural Surgery Fellowship for Provincial Surgeons helps provincial surgeons to take time away from their practice to travel and develop existing skills or acquire new skills. Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Sarah Coll, who is based in Cairns in Far North Queensland, was delighted to discover she was entitled to apply for a Learning and Development grant. She explains her own experiences with the grant and the benefits the grant provides for RACS Fellows located in non-metropolitan areas of Australia & Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Rural Surgery Fellowship for Provincial Surgeons is one of many grants now open for application through RACS Learning and Development grants round, with outcomes advised in November.
Applications close 12 September 2021.
