Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowships

The Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowships are supported by Corporate Health Ltd in memory of Sir Nigel Mobbs. They offer an excellent opportunity for individuals to travel to a centre of excellence to study a particular aspect of occupational medicine or to travel to a scientific meeting for which they have had a paper or poster accepted, but which they would otherwise not be able to afford.

The principal purpose of the Fellowships is to provide the successful applicant(s) with:

  • experience of, and exposure to, the practice of occupational medicine in a country or countries other than the United Kingdom, or
  • the opportunity to attend a short course, meeting or conference not normally accessible to them, to enhance knowledge and/or skills in general and/or specific aspects of occupational medical practice, or
  • the opportunity to present a poster or paper accepted for an overseas meeting, or
  • the ability for an individual to take unpaid leave to undertake research, or write a book or chapter of a book on any aspect of occupational medical practice, or
  • the opportunity to subsidise attendance at a professional or academic course
  • leading to an additional qualification relevant to occupational medical practice.

Fellowships are not restricted to Faculty members, but preference in making awards will fall, at the Faculty’s discretion, firstly to doctors in training, secondly to recently qualified specialists and finally to well-established specialists.

Applications must be made on the application form and must reach the Faculty office by the specified closing date. The successful applicant(s) will be announced at the next following Annual General Meeting.

Deadline for 2017 Mobbs Fellowship applications: 2 December 2016
