Fellowship DVSE SLAHOC
The Fellowship was founded and started in 2011 by Christoph U. Schulz (DVSE/SECEC) and Daniel Moya (AAHC/SLAHOC).
Since 2014, it has officially been established under the patronage of the DVSE.
The Fellowship is supported by Tornier/Wright with
for each fellow.
The fellows will be selected at the SLAHOC congress, whereby only the awarded two best presentations can win a fellowship. All hosts, experienced shoulder surgeons and members of the DVSE, practice in Southern Germany and the Alpine region, which keeps travel costs and travel times low. It also makes it easier to get to know the local people and environment.
The fellows will get the chance to present their awarded research at a symposium at one of the two Munich universities (TUM or LMU).
Aim of the Fellowship is a closer cooperation of German-speaking and Latin American specialists of shoulder and elbow surgery. This is reflected in the already held congresses between DVSE and AAHC in Mendoza, Stuttgart and Cologne. In September this year, another highlight will be a joint conference of SLAHOC and DVSE at the ICSES congress in Buenos Aires.
For the future we want to establish a DVSE-SLAHOC fellowship for DVSE members. This bilateral fellowship allows also DVSE members to exchange experiences.
