Paediatrics & Child Health Section: Overseas bursary


Submission deadline: Sunday 23 September 2018
Meeting date: TBC
Bursary: Up to 3 bursaries will be available per year - covering the registration fee plus a contribution of £500 towards travel and hotel costs
Open to: Current RSM Paediatrics & Child Health Section members of all grades

These bursaries are designed to enable Paediatric Consultants and trainees to attend an overseas meeting.

Applicants should complete the submission form - detailing:

  • a brief description of the overseas conference they wish to attend– including title, dates  and venue
  • a brief summary of no more than 500 words outlining why they wish to attend the conference and how will it benefit the work of their clinical teams
  • the conferences attended (both national and international) in the past 5 years

Priority will be given to Paediatric Consultants in clinical practices who have not attended an overseas meeting in the past 5 years. 

In the event that an applicant is awarded a travel bursary by another organisation the applicant must withdraw their application to the RSM.

The bursary funds will be awarded after the successful candidate has returned from the conference and provided a report of their experiences of the conference; particularly focussing on how it will influence their clinical practice and how they have shared their experience / learning with their clinical teams. The reports will be uploaded to the Paediatrics & Child Health Section page on the RSM website and, if appropriate winners may be invited to speak at a relevant Section meeting to present “Highlights of the (relevant) conference”.
