Fellowship Validation

Guidelines

Fellows can choose to perform their fellowship in a EUROSPINE Endorsed Host Training Centre, a European non-endorsed centre or a Non-European, non-endorsed centre.

The selected host training centre must specialise in spine health or be an autonomous Spine Centre in the Orthopaedic and/or Neurosurgical Spine Department, preferably in a teaching hospital or in large public or private hospital. The selected Host Training Centre must be able to provide sufficient exposure to a wide range of procedures and spine surgeries.

The fellow must remain in the institution for a minimum of 6 months.

It may be that the fellowship was already done years ago in any of the described centres. This fellowship can also be validated.

The full requirements for a host training centre are described in the Fellowship Validation Guidelines.

Process

EUROSPINE will not provide the fellow with any support, financial compensation, salary or grant. Fellows are responsible to organise their fellowship directly with their chosen host centre.

How to apply?

Applicants will apply for fellowship validation through the online application process and will submit the required proofs:

1. Either a certificate stating that at least 6 months of fellowship was performed in a EUROSPINE Endorsed Host Training Centre or a EUROSPINE Surgical Spine Center of Excellence (SSCoE).
2. Or in the case that the fellowship was done in a European non-endorsed centre or a non-European, non-endorsed centre, the applicant will need to provide the following:
a. A fellowship report describing how the fellowship was relevant to their training with supporting documentation.
b. A letter from the head of unit certifying that the training centre meets the centres qualification requirement described in the fellowship validation guidelines.

We can only process and review complete applications including the required above-mentioned documents and required information regarding the fellowship and host centre. Please ensure your application is complete before sending it.

Applications will be assessed based on the relevance of the fellowship to the fellow’s training and capacity of the host training centre to provide appropriate education and support to the fellow.

Applicants will be informed via e-mail of the decision regarding the validation of the fellowship.
