RCSI Ethicon Travel Grants

This fund was established through the generosity of Ethicon for the purpose of promoting international goodwill in surgery by providing financial assistance to Fellows and Members of RCSI, in good standing, enabling them to travel overseas to visit centres of excellence for clinical training purposes.

Ranging in value up to €2,500 each, grants are available to trainees at an advanced stage of higher surgical training or who have completed surgical training in the RCSI within the previous two years.

The purpose of the grants is to contribute to the travel expenses of trainees wishing to visit overseas centres of excellence for clinical training purposes.
