The Clinical Visit programme will offer scholars observership and opportunities to finetune their skills under the guidance of experts. The duration of this programme is from 6 weeks to 3 months.

For the 1-Year Scholarship, the EUSP scholars can search for and contact certified local host centres where they can set up basic research projects.

The deadline for applications for both programmes is 1 May 2021. Click here for more information on the requirements and how to apply.

Other EUSP programmes

The EUSP also offers fellowships such as the European Robotic Curriculum, ESTU Fellowship on Kidney Transplant, and EULIS Fellowship in Endourology.

The latest addition to the EUSP fellowship programme involves 2 COVID-19-themed projects wherein the EUSP recently collaborated with the EAU Section of Andrological Urology (ESAU) and ReproUnion to bolster pioneering research on the effects of COVID-19 on urological patients.

The consortium is searching for 2 residents/post-doc/PhD fellows to take part in one of the two projects themed “Impact of the human virome on male reproductive health – lessons learned from COVID-19 pandemia”. The projects will focus on research with the possibility of clinical/surgical training in andrology. The deadline for applications is 15 May 2021. The projects will commence on 1 September 2021.
