This visiting fellowships is made possible thanks to Depuy Synthes which has funded this programme. The programme provides fellowship visits with a focus on the fields of total hip (with particular focus on anterior approach for THR) and hip arthroscopy. 

The objective is to allow orthopaedic surgeons to develop their surgical skills in a sub-specialty through a work-based surgical program provided by a supervisor and institution

A Travelling Fellowship fund of up to €750 will be awarded by JACOMPOR to each Fellow to cover the cost of transport, accommodation, food and other essential expenses.
