Scottish Cancer Prevention Network

Study period in Melbourne


Jul 17

We were delighted to present Ehsan Salim with our 2017 SCPN elective bursary, a £300 award to support a period of elective study on a topic relating to cancer prevention. Ehsan, a 3rd year medical student at the University of Glasgow, will be undertaking a 4-week placement with a gastroenterologist/surgeon who has a special interest in oncology of the GI and oesophageal reflux disease in Melbourne, Australia. He hopes to use this period of study to learn more about how the risk factors for GI cancers, e.g. obesity, impact on individuals and healthcare systems and what clinicians can do to educate patients and support them to reduce their risk factors.

Congratulations on receiving this award Ehsan and we look forward to hearing how you got on with your studies in Melbourne.
