The ISHA Global Travelling Fellowship

Two young surgeons chatting

The purpose of the ISHA – The Hip Preservation Society Global Travelling Fellowship is to provide an educational programme intended to allow surgeons to develop their knowledge and skills in the field of hip preservation surgery.

The Fellowship is coordinated by the ISHA Fellowship Committee and the ISHA Office. It will provide the opportunity for two hip surgeons, who are within 5 years of starting their independent practice, to follow an international fellowship programme with some of the leading surgeons in hip preservation surgery. The Fellow will have the opportunity to spend a period with an ISHA approved surgeon in his/her home country as well as with two other surgeons on two different continents.

The geographical regions are as follows

  • Europe (to include Turkey)
  • North America
  • South America
  • Asia/Oceania
  • Africa, Middle East

At each surgical centre, the fellow will have the opportunity to observe and to be closely involved (as an assistant) in arthroscopic surgery performed by a leading ISHA approved surgeon, to discuss surgical procedures and all aspects of patient management, and to share research experience.
