Applications are welcomed from medical and paramedical BSGE members. Bursaries are available to support educational courses relevant to Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery. Nurse and GP hysteroscopy courses, MSc courses in Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery & nurse endoscopic surgical assistant/practitioner courses would all be considered suitable.
