The Wong Choon Hee Elective Bursaries 2012

In association with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

 

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, in association with Surgicareers and Miss Amanda Wong-Powell (MBChB Sheffield MRCS Edinburgh), is pleased to offer medical students an opportunity to apply for the Wong Choon Hee elective bursary towards their elective in Surgery.
 
Mr. Wong Choon Hee, who passed away on 10th June 2007, after a battle with pancreatic cancer, was Miss Wong-Powell's late father and this bursary is in memory of him. He supported her through medical school and was keen for everyone to have an opportunity for a career in surgery.
 
Three bursaries are available, one of £250 and two of £125.

Students wishing to apply for the bursary will find more details on the RCS Edinburgh site here:
