The BOPSS committee would like to announce the introduction of the International Visiting Fellows Awards. This offers oculoplastic surgeons, who are working abroad, financial support to visit the UK for a short observership under the patronage of a full BOPSS member. Members are invited to propose a visitor for the award; the total value of the which is £2000. It is expected that the proposer/s will arrange the necessary visas and accommodation.
In addition to the award, the successful candidate/s will qualify for the BOPSS Meeting Attendance Grant that offers free admission to the Annual Meeting. Applications should be made online and will be considered by BOPSS Research and Awards Advisory Committee.
The award is possible as the result of a gift to BOPSS to introduce the scheme.
