JATS is pleased to announce the Asian Travelling Fellowship has been created for the 71st Annual Scientific Meeting of the JATS to be held in Tokyo between October 3rd and 6th 2018. We encourage advanced trainees and early career surgeons in the Asian countries to apply for it.


This travel grant is established to enhance internationalization of the academic communities in our professions within the Asian countries and to help promising young cardiothoracic surgeons further broaden their overall training. This travel grant will provide 100,000 JP yen per person to partially cover airfare and accommodation fee for ten presenters in total. Their registration fee will be exempted. The current deadline for the application and abstract submission approaching, which is April 24th. Please refer the following website for more information in detail.
