The EHS Travelling Fellowship 2017 supported two young hip surgeons visiting top orthopaedic centres in France for three weeks.

The two winners were Dr Oleksii Tankut of Kharkiv, Ukraine and Dr Goksel Dikmen of Istanbul, Turkey. Congratulations went to them both! They were selected by the EHS ExCom and EduCom from tough competition.

Thank you to all our applicants.

A Travelling Fellowship fund of up to €3,000 euros will be awarded by EHS to each Fellow to cover the cost of transport, accommodation, food and other essential expenses.

They will be guests at our EHS Congress in 2018 in The Hague and are obliged to give a short oral and written presentation on their Fellowship there.
