The BJS Travelling Fellowship was first awarded in 1979. Funded by the BJS, it allows the President to choose a distinguished surgeon from overseas to visit and report on surgical practice within acute general hospitals.

Exceptionally, surgeons from the British Isles have been invited to visit centres at home and abroad. The current value is £5,000.
