Samuel Leonard Simpson fellowships in endocrinology

Applications are invited for the Samuel Leonard Simpson fellowships in endocrinology.

The fellowships

The purpose of the fellowships is to enable endocrinologists to learn new techniques and acquire new experiences, ideas and stimulation through travel and the exchange of ideas. In doing so they will honour the name of Dr Samuel Leonard Simpson, a pioneer of British endocrinology.

Applications will be considered from suitably qualified candidates in the UK wishing to make visits abroad, or from those abroad wishing to visit the UK. Up to £8,000 is available, which may be awarded to one or more candidates.

  • members/fellows of the Royal College of Physicians.
