Full Text: ASSA has established a Young Surgeons Sponsorship to enable registrars to visit other academic centres to gain skills in areas not covered at their own institutions. Unfortunately in 2007 there were no nominations for this award. This was discussed at Exco and it was felt that this was mainly for logistical reasons.

It was suggested that registrars make a collateral swap. Academic heads of departments are to come up with possible candidates.
