Aspire Post CSCST Fellowships 2024


Post-CSCST Fellowships within Ireland offer an alternative to trainees now that our own specialist clinical expertise and services have matured and developed.  These Fellowships provide opportunities for those doctors who have completed specialist training to access high-quality training in a specialised area of clinical care.  They are designed for doctors who need to acquire additional training or experience which was not available on their Higher Specialist Training programme. The additional training provided exposes graduates to subspecialties and advanced clinical skills.
