The ABN Australasian Fellowships are 12-month clinical placements in Australasia commencing late January/early February and expected to complement the clinical training in the UK. The posts will give the incumbents 12 months' accreditation towards their CCT in neurology.
This annual scheme commenced in 2013 and parallels the very successful ANZAN Fellowships to the UK that have been running for more than 20 years.
The recipient Australasian cities vary and will be confirmed when applications open each year.
HOST SITES FOR 2018 FELLOWSHIP WILL BE:
Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) in Perth
Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney
The Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, near Melbourne
Applications open about 15 months before the start of the fellowship with interviews in March of the year preceding the fellowship.
The early application process allows the successful applicants as much time as possible to complete the necessary paperwork and also allow local training programme directors to fill the vacant training slot back in the UK.
Applicants apply through a CV and maximum 500-word statement outlining the objectives sought from such an overseas Fellowship. They must discuss their intention to apply with their local Training Programme Director (TPD) and also submit a short statement from the TPD supporting the application.
