Major TWJ Fellowships comprise a high level of clinical activity with hands-on surgical experience supervised by a mentor, combined with the opportunity to be involved in an otology research programme.  Applicants must be ENT Specialty Registrars on numbered otolaryngology training programmes in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland: they must have passed the Intercollegiate FRCS by the time of interview, but may be pre- or post-CCT by the time the Fellowship commences.

Short TWJ Fellowships to Béziers, Nijmegen and Antwerp may be applied for at any time by contacting Lidija Ivnik, Executive Assistant (see ‘Further Information’ at the foot of this page).
