German SICOT Fellowships

Funded by the SICOT German section  

The fellowships were awarded for the first time in 2005
and are presented to the two best candidates who pass the annual SICOT Diploma Examination. The two fellows are invited to visit well-known German orthopaedic centres for a period of four weeks. Travel is organised by the German Section of SICOT. Special interests of the fellows are taken into consideration in the choice of hosting centres. The sponsorship also includes: an economy class air ticket, food and accommodation, travel expenses within Germany and an allowance up to a maximum total of EUR 2,500 per fellow.

The two candidates are selected by the Board of Examiners at the end of the SICOT Diploma Examination. Besides an excellent exam result, good knowledge of the English language is the main selection criterion.


The purpose of the fellowships is to reward participants in the examination for their achievements and to give them the opportunity to meet with leading German orthopaedic surgeons.
