José Casamitjana Instructional Course Bursary
José Manuel Casamitjana Ferrandiz was a highly respected Cervical Spine Surgeon and past Head of Department at Vall d'Hebron Hospital, Barcelona, Spain. He was President of the CSRS-Europe from 2009 – 2011 and responsible for the setting up of the Bi-annual CSRS-Europe Cadaver Courses in Barcelona. He sadly passed away on the 5th May 2017 and this Bursary is in recognition and serves to celebrate the memory of his invaluable contribution to our society over a great many years.
The Bursary is an assisted place offered twice a year to allow a qualifying surgeon to attend the Bi-annual CSRS-Europe Cadaveric Instructional Course. ‘Qualifying individual’ means an individual who would wish to attend the course but who is unable to do so because of a lack of available financial resource from local Institutional, national or other funding sources to attend.
The bursary allows one eligible person to attend each CSRS-Europe Cadaveric Instructional course without having to pay the attendance fee; the society will also book and pay for two nights hotel costs for the duration of the course. He or she will be eligible for consideration of reimbursement of their travel costs to and from the meeting up to but not exceeding a maximum amount of 300 euros upon supply of valid receipts with the proviso that they must travel by economy class or similar.
‘Eligible person’ means an individual who is either a surgical trainee in their last two years of surgical training or an accredited spinal specialist or consultant in their first two years of appointment. They must be in training or salaried post in an Institution within Europe.
In your application you must state the reasons why you cannot obtain study funding to attend the course from other sources. The application must include a copy of your CV together with a letter of support and evidence of your interest in spinal surgery from the Head of Department of an appropriate department at your Institution.
