Spine Fellowships and Clinical Visits

This is a web-based resource for surgical centres to promote their fellowships and clinical visit opportunities available in the UK and around the world, and for trainee spine surgeons to identify where fellowship programmes exist.

If you wish to apply for any fellowships or clinical visits, please contact the institution or person detailed in the adverts. BASS cannot accept applications, nor apply on your behalf.

To Submit a Fellowship or Clinical Visit to appear on this list, you will need to be a member of BASS and access the form in the Member's Area once logged in.

Please Note: This listing is provided free of charge by the British Association of Spine Surgeons (BASS). This is not a definitive listing of available fellowships. BASS has made no assessment of the standards of these fellowships and are not inferring that they meet any standards by appearing on this website.
