Up to two short term fellowships will be awarded each year to neurologists from Eastern Europe (in former Warsaw pact countries) and countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (on the OECD's List of ODA Recipients). The fellowships are intended for clinicians who wish to spend up to three months in a UK Clinical Neurology department. These Fellowships have been established in memory of the late Professor John Newsom-Davis, a former editor of Brain, through the generous support of friends and colleagues.
The awards will provide a maximum of £1500 per month to support travel and living costs. The award must be administered by the host department, who also undertake to manage any issues related to employment law and visa requirements.
The visit can be to obtain further clinical or laboratory experience.
Applicants should submit their CV and a two page summary of the aims of the visit, with details of costs to be incurred, and signed letters of recommendation from their current Head of Department and from the Head of Department of the host institution in the UK. The applicant is required to submit a short report within 3 months of completing the visit.
There are two deadlines every year; February 20th and September 20th. Applications should be submitted in advance of this deadline.
Submit informal enquiries via contact form.
