ICRS Grants, Fellowships & Scholarships

ICRS Grants, Fellowships & Scholarships

The ICRS and its partners have joined forces by offering several Fellowship & Scholarship Programmes to the ICRS membership. Applications are open only to active ICRS Members (below age 40) who are in good standing. The programme represents a serious commitment from ICRS and its partners to support highly motivated trainees and residents with basic science knowledge and clinical research skills. Together we build a strong network and push for innovation. We believe that research is the engine of development and that linking and educating passionate young professionals is the way to advance the field of orthoregeneration significantly. Applications should be submitted before the deadline of each programme. Applications received after the deadline, will not be considered.


ICRS Sports Medicine Fellowship 2023

The objective of this fellowship is to provide an opportunity for international exchange for young orthopaedic surgeons, fellows, or clinical scientists interested in cartilage regeneration and joint preservation with a particular focus on sports medicine. This will be accomplished by a stimulating environment with exposure to both science and clinical application of treatments for joint restoration in athletes. Selected fellows will spend one week in the Aspetar Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Hospital, Doha, Qatar. This is an ICRS and ISAKOS training centre, as well as a FIFA-accredited medical centre of excellence, one of the leading institutions worldwide in the spectrum of sports injuries applying a multidisciplinary approach in diagnosis and treatment.

Fellows will visit the state-of-the-art facilities including the sports surgery training centre, the sports medicine movement analysis laboratory, the physiotherapy and rehabilitation area, and be exposed to other intriguing new treatment approaches like climatic chamber and virtual reality. Hosted by the godfather Emmanuel T. Papacostas, the fellows will arrive on the 19th of January 2023. After one week, they will also have the opportunity to conclude their fellowship by joining the 7th ICRS Surgical Skills Course & Wet Lab on January 26-28, 2023, which will bring together international acknowledged experts to highlight the most recent development in surgical techniques with regards to cartilage regeneration and joint preservation. A remarkable academic agenda will include scientific lectures and 4 extensive hands-on workshops on human cadaver specimens, with a full portfolio of cartilage treatment strategies and a special focus on knee and ankle injuries in sports pathology. The selected fellows will have the opportunity to network, exchange ideas in a high-profile hospital and sports facilities environment, view research facilities and surgical procedures and participate in social and cultural events with the hosting cartilage repair community.

Three candidates will be selected and awarded this fellowship covering the basic travel costs, hosting, and Wet Lab participation of this programme.
