The SCOT Zimmer Biomet Travelling Fellowship aims to provide support to Scottish Orthopaedic Trainees undertaking fellowship periods of training.
Having been suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it resumed in 2022. The award is made through a competitive submission and interview process.
It is awarded by a panel comprising representatives from all four training regions (usually the TPD) and chaired by a member of the SCOT Committee.
It is kindly supported by a grant from Zimmer Biomet.
