Fellowships with the AAFPS

This is a self-funded Fellowship program. The application process is a lengthy one, taking up to 6 months to complete therefore Fellowships are granted 6 months prior to commencement.

Currently there are two Fellowship programs run by the AAFPS, one based in Sydney under the directorship of a number of surgeons and the other based in Perth under the directorship of Dr Tuan Pham.

The Fellowship runs for a 12 month tenure.
