Travelling Fellowship 2020

Wed, 30th January 2019

Applications are now OPEN for the NACT North Carolina Travelling Fellowship 2020.

Introduction

Those who have been NACT UK Members for a minimum of 2 years and have regularly attended NACT UK meetings are eligible to apply for the annual NACT UK Fellowship to North Carolina, which is supported to the value of £3000.  The aim of the Fellowship is to provide an opportunity for a member to experience another healthcare system and study some aspect of postgraduate or continuing medical education. It is expected that the Fellowship will change the way you view, understand or practice some aspect of your role in medical education.

 

Time

The Fellowship is for 2-4 weeks and is usually taken late summer/early autumn. Most Fellows spend a month away and are encouraged to include some holiday within this time. Many have found this sabbatical stimulating, exciting and for many a life changing experience, with the break from routine duties invigorating.

 

North Carolina

The Fellow will gain a broad experience of medical education in North Carolina as well as sampling some legendary American hospitality and seeing many parts of this beautiful area of the United States.  This is part of a reciprocal arrangement NACT UK has with AHEC at Chapel Hill in North Carolina and each year a Fellow from AHEC visits the UK. The Fellow will be hosted by AHEC colleagues across North Carolina and flown round the State in a light aircraft.

Application

To apply for this Fellowship, members are asked to submit a proposal outlining what they would use the Fellowship for and how it would contribute to their professional and personal development in medical education.

  • Applications should be submitted by email to the office by 30 September 2019
  • The interviews are held in London from 3.15pm on Thursday 24 October 2019 and applicants must be available for this.
  • Applicants must be current Members of NACT UK.
  • On return Fellows are expected to write an article for Clinical Tutor and to present at the following Annual Spring Meeting.
