Travelling Fellowship

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 in Europe.

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.

The main goals of the EFORT travelling fellowship programme are declared in its aims and rules:

”To enhance and unify orthopaedic training, continuous medical education and knowledge transfer”. But just as important as teaching is to “support and create new personal bonds to improve mutual understanding, collaboration …”.

With these goals in mind, EFORT and one National Member Society will organise a travelling fellowship every Spring and Autumn.
