The prestigious Moynihan Travelling Fellowship, up to the value of £5,000, is available annually by open competition to Specialist Registrars towards the end of higher surgical training or Consultants within five years of appointment at the closing date for this application. The Fellowship is intended to enable the successful candidate to broaden their education and to present and discuss their contribution to British and Irish surgery overseas. It is not appropriate, however, that the award be used as part-funding for an off-service year of training.The Fellowship is open to ASGBI members and non-members; however, if a non-member is successful in getting the Fellowship then they will be required to become a member of ASGBI. Candidates must be residents of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland and they should be engaged in general surgery or in one of its sub-specialties. A full Curriculum Vitae should be submitted giving details of all past and present appointments and publications, together with a detailed account of the proposed programme of travel, costs involved and objectives to be achieved during the Fellowship.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to attend for interview by the Association’s Executive Board. The Board will pay particular attention to originality, scope and feasibility of the proposed itinerary. The successful candidate will be expected to act as an ambassador for British and Irish Surgery and should be fully acquainted with the aims and objectives of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and its role in surgery. After the Fellowship, the successful candidate will be required to provide a written report of their Fellowship for inclusion in the Association’s Journal, and to address a future ASGBI International Surgical Congress. A critical appraisal of the Centres visited, together with an assessment of how the experience will enhance future personal and professional development, should form the basis of the report.

Applications are now closed.
