Grants and awards for SAS doctors

SAS Professional Development Grant of up to £2,000

Applications to the SAS Professional Development Grant are now welcomed from SAS doctors who are members of the Association of Anaesthetists. The grant is intended to enhance the individuals experience, for example in attending clinical management, leadership and other educational skills courses or acquiring new skills which are relevant to the workplace, in particular where this improves the quality of patient care and improves service development.

The grant must not fund routine CPD activities which should be funded through the normal study leave budget of trusts, nor examination fees, exam preparation courses or College related fees.

The grant fund is a total of £2,000 and the awarding Committee may decide to award multiple awards within the total available in any one year, but in exceptional circumstances are able to award the full amount to one applicant.

All SAS doctors who are current members of the Association of Anaesthetists are eligible to apply. Any applications received that do not meet the required criteria will not be accepted.

Applications must be submitted online and must be accompanied by the required application form.
