American Society for Surgery of the Hand Bunnell Fellowship Program
Deadline: June 2, 2014
The purpose of the Bunnell Fellowship is to provide scholarship funding for a young Hand Surgeon to pursue an educational or academic goal that requires national and international collaboration, and which fosters the principles of scholarship of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. It is anticipated that the Bunnell Fellow, his/her hosts, and the respective Hand Societies will mutually benefit from the stimulation of collaborative research directions, expansion of academic opportunities, and the development of lifelong relationships with our national and international colleagues. Funding for the Fellowship is provided by the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand.
1. The applicant must have completed a fellowship in hand surgery.
2. The hand surgery fellowship (or residency if taken after fellowship) must have been completed between June 30, 2004 and the present.
3.Applicants must be Active Members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and must apply within seven years following election to ASSH Active Membership. 2014 applicants must have joined ASSH in 2006 or later.
The Bunnell Committee expects applicants to develop a fellowship theme that clearly delineates a specific area of clinical interest, a scientific pursuit, or an educational mission that the applicant would like to investigate during the Fellowship. The itinerary should be purposely designed to include those individuals in national or international centers who would best fulfill the applicant’s Fellowship theme. The Bunnell Fellow will be expected to present a scientific report of his/her Fellowship theme in the context of the Fellowship travels at the Annual Meeting of the ASSH.
Application for the Fellowship should include a detailed, one page description of the scientific theme to be pursued during the Bunnell Fellowship. The statement should specifically describe the planned objectives of your Fellowship, and the persons or institutions that you plan to visit to fulfill your Fellowship goals. It is important to complete and submit a budget and timeline, as funding for the Fellowship is limited to $15,000.00. Bunnell Fellows are strongly encouraged to stay within the budgetary guidelines.
A committee of former Bunnell fellows selects the new fellow based on the applicant's scholarship, ASSH contributions, and the strength of the proposed collaborative project. The new Bunnell fellow is notified shortly before the Annual meeting.
