Applying for fellowships
Catherine Rennie, FRCS ORL-NHS, ENT-UK
The aim of this session is to make ENT trainees aware of the wide variety of fellowship options available to them across all subspecialties, to discuss the benefits of doing a fellowship, to provide information on how and when to apply for fellowship, to discuss funding sources available. I will discuss my decision making process on which fellowships I applied for and outline and what I have gained through my RCS Rhinology fellowship.
