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. The first edition took place in the Netherlands and Belgium and was solely about the shoulder. In 2022 we will focus on knee pathology. We have two programs which are open for application. One of them takes place in Portugal and one in The Netherlands/Belgium.
During this fellowship, the candidates will have the opportunity to visit different hospitals with two to three fellows. It mainly 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. The specialists from the participating hospitals are highly appreciated in their work regarding their subspeciality and will provide you a tremendous amount of knowledge from which you can benefit in your future practice.
