This pilot scheme will award two fellowships of up to £65k for a project in any area of orthopaedics and is now open for applications.

Research projects in any aspect of the field of orthopaedic surgery or surgical care will be considered, including basic science, diagnosis, treatment, surgical technology, logistics or audit.
