The BOSU Surveillance Study Bursary for an ophthalmologist in Training 2016
22 September 2016
With the kind support from The Red Trust and the Ross Foundation the BOSU is once again offering three research bursaries of £6000 to support ophthalmologists in training to undertake an epidemiological study of a rare eye condition through the British Ophthalmological Surveillance Unit or the Scottish Ophthalmological Surveillance Unit.
- The RED Trust BOSU Bursary– for an ophthalmologist in Training
- The Ross Foundation BOSU bursary for an ophthalmologist Training in Scotland (Eligible ophthalmologists may submit the same application for consideration for both awards.)
- The Ross Foundation SOSU study bursary for an ophthalmologist Training in Scotland.
Suitable conditions for BOSU studies are a predicted annual incidence of less than 5 per million (300 cases per annum in the UK), however we believe that topics with an expected incidence of between 75 and 125 are best suited for this award.
Suitable conditions for SOSU studies are a predicted annual incidence of less than 30 per million (150 cases per annum in Scotland).
The objective for these awards is to:
- Enable the successful ophthalmologist to develop their research knowledge and skills.
- Add to the body of knowledge of rare eye diseases and conditions.
Assistance with preparation of applications is available from the BOSU and applicants are advised to initially contact Barny Foot (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07808 581659) for an informal discussion and to request application guidelines.
Closing date for applications for all bursaries is 4th November 2016
