Knowledge shared is knowledge multiplied. This is the credo of the European Urological Scholarship Programme (EUSP). Its 5 core programmes can offer you exclusive opportunities to visit prestigious European institutions, observe experts in action and undertake innovatory clinical and experimental research.
The EUSP offers the following stellar programmes:
For a duration of 2 to 3 weeks, the Short Visit provides you with a first-rate learning experience at a centre of excellence in Europe. This programme can be a precursor to the 1-Year Scholarship and Fellowship programmes.
Take part in a year-long research project under the guidance of experts. Finetune your skills and enhance your knowledge in a leading certified host centre abroad.
Know the best practices by observing the experts firsthand at a reputable institution abroad for a period of 6 to 12 weeks. Collaborate with the experts to generate an international peer-reviewed publication.
Elevate your capabilities and enrich your clinical practice through outstanding fellowships developed by the EUSP and the EAU Section Office.
Institutions in Europe can apply to this programme to receive support in hosting a leading European urologist as a visiting professor for 5 days.
Applicants for the EUSP Scholarships must be EAU members who are urologists, urologists-in-training, or urology-associated basic scientists. All projects and/or visits must be conducted in a European institution. A candidate is eligible for one grant only, except in case of a short visit in preparation of a one-year scholarship.
A host centre may not organise two or more EUSP visits at the same time.
Further conditions for application can be found in the description of each programme.
Every year, there are three deadline dates for the scholarship application: 1st of January, 1st of May, and 1st of September.
To streamline the certification process of training centres, the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the European Board of Urology (EBU) developed the EUSP Host Centre Certification programme.
This certification enables an institution to provide scholars the locale for optimal knowledge exchange while setting standards for equal urological care in Europe. Applying for a visit at a Certified EUSP Host Centre is higly recommended, but not mandatory.
The EAU stimulates and supports innovative research by junior investigators to encourage knowledge exchange across the EU.
