Accredited Short Fellowships

New BAHNO awards

BAHNO is pleased to announce that it is offering two "BAHNO Accredited Short Fellowships”. 

These offer the successful applicant the opportunity to spend a short but focused period of time at a centre/unit offering a specific learning experience. We are currently proposing a one-month period but this period can be flexible according to the host unit and applicant.

At the moment we are offering one oncology fellowship at The Christie Hospital (Manchester) with the focus being Proton Beam Therapy. The second fellowship is at UCL (London) with exposure to Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy for Head & Neck aimed at any specialty involved with this technique. 

We anticipate that as the period of time is short it will cause minimal disruption at the applicant’s home unit. BAHNO is offering an award of £2500 towards accommodation, travel and necessary expenses.

Applicants must be current fully subscribed and UK-based BAHNO members or associate members and be able to satisfy the host organisation’s HR clearance process (CRB check, vaccination record, professional registration, indemnity etc).

BAHNO is committed to supporting equality, diversity and Inclusion. Applications are encouraged to reflect the broad community of BAHNO membership and any adjustments to the fellowship required for the candidate will be accommodated. 

Applicants should apply to BAHNO ( with:


  • A letter explaining their motivation and what they wish to obtain from the fellowship.
  • The applicant’s up-to-date CV.
  • Details of two current referees.
  • Written evidence of provisional approval for them to take time away from their unit if applicable.


The applicant must agree to provide a structured report to BAHNO following the fellowship and should agree to its publication on the BAHNO website. 

The applications will be assessed by a sub-committee of BAHNO council using an open and clear scoring metric/rationale.


The closing date for applications is Sunday April 21st (at midnight). We expect to announce the successful applicants at our annual scientific meeting (17th May). The detailed plan of timing for the fellowship will be arranged by the applicant and host unit.
