For more information and eligibility to apply, please click on the criteria below.
In all cases proof of purchase of travel tickets and confirmation of hotel or other accommodation booked will be required. In the case of Bursary A proof of training fees will also be required. The bursaries will not be paid into the successful applicant’s bank account until either the course is completed or the conference has taken place. They must therefore be able to provide the necessary funds to support themselves while in the United Kingdom.
The bursary scheme has been running now for several years which has helped clinicians from around the world to further their professional careers as well as spread best practice and clinical approach in this specialised field. The charity has supported health care professionals from Nepal to Nigeria and Australia to Jordan. Click here to read their stories..
