Call for ENT UK Foundation BACO 2023 Travelling Fellowships

We are pleased to announce that applicants are invited to apply to the ENT UK Foundation Travelling BACO 2023 Fellowships programme.

Successful applicants will receive free three-day registration for BACO 23 and a ticket to the BACO Networking Evening, plus £750 towards travel and expenses. Applicants will be selected by members of the ENT UK Foundation Committee and the ENT UK Education and Training Committee.  There will only be a small number of available Fellowships and we expect successful applicants to help us foster ongoing international links on their return.

  • Be living and working in HINARI A or HINARI B country
  • Be a trainee within their country or specialist/consultant within 10 years of appointment
