PSA-GSA Grants

General Surgeons Australia (GSA) is extremely supportive of initiatives that encourage our Trainees and IMG’s to become involved in regional and rural surgical careers. This is a significant workforce issue for General Surgery and one of the strategic imperatives of GSA.

To support Trainees and IMGs investigating Rural Surgery as a career option, GSA will be offering several Provincial Surgeons of Australia 2018 Annual Scientific Conference Registration Grants, each valued at up to $770 Inc. GST.

Applications will open on 06 May, 2019.

Application Process

  1. General Surgery Trainees and IMG’s wishing to access the grants must first register and pay for the PSA 2018 ASC online (registration opening on 23 April, 2018)
  2. The PSA ASC Grant/Rural Coach Application form must be completed and submitted as directed
  3. All applications will be assessed by the selected panel.

Successful applicants will have their registration payment awarded retrospectively
