4.  Bruce Bailey Fellowship

Mr. Bruce Bailey, Retired Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon at  Stoke Mandeville HospitalUnited Kingdom passed away in April 2001.  He was responsible for training many Plastic Surgeons from  India including Dr S Raja Sabapathy.  He opened the windows of opportunities for many young surgeons from our country.  In the memory of this great man “Bruce Bailey Traveling Fellowship” was set up by  Ganga Hospital .  Bruce visited  India many times and loved it.  It is felt that setting up a Fellowship to enable a British Trainee visit our unit for a period of 6 to 8 weeks is a good way to keep the memory of the great man alive.  It surely will build bridges between the two countries to mutual advantage.  The Fellowship is recognized and announced in the newsletters of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand for the information of the interested candidates.
