BOA Clinical Leadership Programme 2017/18

- UKSSB funded places


UKSSB has committed full funding for a minimum of three places on this programme.

The first BOA Orthopaedic Clinical Leadership Programme commenced in October 2015, which included 25 surgeons who had been selected following a competitive application process. The new programme incorporates the previous BOA Transitional Fellowship programme, however, it has widened its reach with the addition of Senior Trainee (ST8 or above when the programme runs), a newly appointed consultant (less than 3 years) or a SAS Surgeon (FRCS Tr & Orth).

Spinefellowships is a new web based resource that provides up to date information of spine fellowship programmes and clinical visit opportunities available in the world.

It is provided for surgical centres to promote their fellowships and for trainee spine surgeons to identify where fellowship programmes exist.

It is provided free of charge on behalf of the British Association of Spine Surgeons (BASS).

Please note BASS has made no assessment of these fellowships and are not inferring that they meet any standards by appearing on the website.

Please feel free to browse the site and register to add fellowships or clinical visitation programmes.
