Applications are now open to the most recent FORTE Traveling Fellowship!
The FORTE Traveling Fellowship is a yearly returning fully sponsored fellowship with rotating topics and the first edition is designed for European Orthopaedic Residents. Depending on the year one or multiple programs will be open for application. In 2023 we will focus on Foot & Ankle pathology. At this moment, we have one program open for application, which will take place in the Netherlands/Belgium.
During this fellowship, the candidates will have the opportunity to visit different hospitals with three fellows. It concerns an observing fellowship and you will be exposed to a great variety of surgical procedures and will also be actively involved in scientific discussion sessions.
