A limited number of bursaries are available to trainee doctors working within the HEE Thames Valley area. These are funded by OUCAGS. They cover the whole cost of the conference (but not expenses) including the dinner, attendance at which is expected. Presenters of abstracts will be prioritised for these funded places. If you would like to apply please do not register for the conference online as the places are funded directly rather than reimbursed.

If you are submitting an abstract and wish to apply for a bursary please tick the appropriate box on the submission form. If you are not submitting an abstract please email Angus McKnight including your contact details, place of work at the time of the conference, specialty and year of training, and current involvement in medical education.
