GESA Postgraduate Clinical Research Scholarship, Australia

Clinical research is defined broadly as research predominantly involving human subjects. It may involve clinical or physiological studies of patients or volunteers, studies based on diagnostic or therapeutic procedures, clinical epidemiology, population studies, observational studies, clinical practice, treatment trials or evaluation of medical technology. There may be a component of laboratory studies, but applications for predominately laboratory-based work should be directed to the other awards offered by the Society.

The award is designed for candidates at an early stage in their careers, for example (but not confined to) advanced trainees who have completed core clinical training at the time of taking up the scholarship.


The applicant is required to:

* Read, understand and agree to all the requirements listed in the 2011 instruction booklet;
* Be a current financial member of the Gastroenterological Society of Australia, defined as “confirmed as a financial member of the society prior to applying for the award”;
* Attend the next Australian Gastroenterology Week (AGW) following notification of the award and in each year of tenure;
* Correctly complete the application form and lodge it with attachments prior to the closing date;
* The proposed supervisor is required to be a current financial member of the Gastroenterological Society of Australia at the time of submission of the application;
* It is preferred that applicants intend pursing a career in gastroenterology or hepatology. However, the research committee reserves the right to evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis.
