Applications to the NJR-RCS Fellowship programme now open
29 September 2014
Applications for two, two-year Fellowships in collaboration with the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) are now open. The National Joint Registry (NJR) was delighted to see the Fellowship programme announced last month at the British Orthopaedic Association Congress.
The NJR-RCS Fellows will have the opportunity to use NJR data as an integral part of their research projects to help grow understanding and improvement in joint replacement surgery.
Chairman of the NJR Research Sub-committee Professor Mark Wilkinson said: "We are looking forwarding to welcoming a new set of Fellows who can help to maximise the value of the data in the NJR and use it in new ways to help drive improvement and quality in orthopaedics. We'd encourage all candidates*, through the application process, to take account of the NJR's strategic aims outlined in our strategic plan."
