RCS One-Year Surgical Research Fellowship
Would you like to spend one-year training in research? Subscribing trainee members of the College in a training post, or trainees who have passed the MCQ papers and will sit the final MRCS examination at this College, are eligible to apply. The research must be undertaken in the UK. The fellowships cover salary, on-costs and some running expenses. Applicants may study any aspect of surgery or surgical care including basic science, diagnosis, treatment, surgical technology, logistics or audit. The main criteria for those interested in applying are to delineate important research questions, with an appropriate study design, which can be completed within the year of the fellowship. The research can also be self-contained or part of a wider research programme.
The supervisor plays a key role in helping with the writing and structure of the application, as well as offering support during the research year. All applications are rigorously assessed by a panel of experts to ensure that the research, surgeon, supervisor and facilities are of a high standard, and that the proposed work will be valid, beneficial and original.
At the end of each period of research, the fellow is asked to submit an evaluation and a report along with details of publications and presentations.
To enable you to prepare, the question for Parts A, B and C can be viewed here.
