We are pleased to announce that BFIRST have sponsored a surgeon to attend this course.
BFIRST (British Foundation for International Reconstructive Surgery & Training) is a UK registered charity which trains surgeons working in the poorest countries in the world to enable them to undertake reconstructive Plastic Surgery, releasing children and adults from the state of poverty and destitution associated with disability and deformity.
Applications for this funding will reopen soon for the next course.
