Each year RACS provides a number of scholarships through the Foundation of Surgery. Scholarships are important to help surgeons, trainees and health professionals facilitate changes and improve the quality of surgical care and practice. Two past scholarship recipients include Professor Greg O’Grady and Doctor Deborah Wright, both based in New Zealand. They share their experiences and discuss the benefits that scholarships have provided to each of them in their fields of research and their careers.
Research scholarships open in March, and Learning and development grants open in August.
2022 research scholarships are ‘now open’ until 12 April, with outcomes advised in August; learning and development grants open in August this year.
If you are a current Trainee or active Fellow, a 2022 Research scholarship could help you contribute to improving the quality of surgical care and practice.
