Fellowship Application Instructions
The objective of the traveling fellowship is to provide an opportunity of international exchange for young orthopaedic surgeons, residents, fellows or clinical scientists. This will be accomplished by providing a stimulating academic environment and to gain exposure to basic science and clinical applications in studies involving articular cartilage injury, repair, and regeneration. Selected as potential leaders in the field of cartilage regeneration and repair, fellows will participate in scientific activities with host physicians, view research facilities and surgical procedures, and participate in social and cultural events with the hosting cartilage repair community. Three Non-European candidates will be awarded with a fellowship to cover the basic travel costs of their programme.
