Lister Fellowship

BAPS is pleased to offer the Lister Fellowship (monetary value £1500), to overseas Paediatric Surgeons, who are within the first two years of consultancy, to attend the annual BAPS scientific congress.

The Fellow will be selected and nominated by their home specialty associations.

FAPSS (for candidates from SAARC countries)

National/Regional Paediatric Surgical Association for Middle East Countries

PAPSA (for candidates from Africa)

The application should be forwarded to the relevant specialty association as mentioned above by 31st October each year.  The specialty association will forward a recommendation to the International Affairs Committee of BAPS by 30th November each year, following a local selection process.  The IAC will make a final recommendation by 31st December each year and the decision would be communicated to the successful candidates after confirmation from the BAPS Executive Committee in January.

Applications should include:

  1. Short (2 page) Curriculum Vitae in English
  2. 200 word document outlining the reasons why this fellowship would be helpful
