We had a successful programme this year. The 2-week junior fellowship programme was in June, which included their participation in the Annual Conference at Kent. This programme was supported by BIOMET through an educational grant.

Inder Gill from Newcastle and Neil Kang from London were the first British trainees to visit centres in India. Inder Gill did his training at Ganga Hospital, Comboitore under the able supervision of Professor Rajasekaran while Neil Kang went to Mumbai and received training under Dr Sanjay Desai. Both have spoken volumes of their time spent in India.
