Clinical Visiting Fellowship

Establish new clinical and scientific collaborations

We support up to 30 trainees in gastroenterology with visiting fellowships to spend two weeks at a renowned European training centre in 2021/22. Each trainee receives € 1,250 to contribute to travel and accommodation costs. 

We acknowledge that your clinical practice and research might be strongly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we know that career mobility is uncertain. Nevertheless, we want to look ahead and be ready to continue this important and very popular programme in 2021. 

The next round of applications will open end of 2021. 

Target group

Applicants for the fellowship programme must:

  • be clinicians (medical, surgical or imaging gastroenterologists and hepatologists)
  • be a maximum of 40 years of age 
  • be fluent in English
  • reside in Europe or the Mediterranean area (countries that are bordering the Mediterranean Sea)
  • be in the last two years of clinical training, or have already finished their training when the fellowships start

A maximum of five applicants from the same department are accepted. Candidates are allowed to participate in the Visiting Fellowship Programme only once. The hosting institution must be different from the home institution and preferably located in a different country.
