The EFORT Travelling Fellowship
Programme aims to enhance and unify orthopaedic training, continuous
medical education and knowledge transfer, supports and creates new
personal bonds to improve the mutual understanding, collaboration
and unity of all National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology
We achieve our goals on the one hand by organising congresses
and instructional courses and on the other hand with our Travelling
Fellowship programme. With this programme we offer our members
(the National Associations) to apply to be host country.
The national presidents are asked to nominate their fellow –
a high potential student in his/her final year of orthopaedic
training to give them also the opportunity to enhance their personal
experience by observation, participation and discussion as well
as to visit other European countries.
EFORT believes, that in addition to the essential scientific
activities, our Travelling Fellowship programme will spread ideas
about geography, culture, social systems and traditions of other
colleagues and countries.
