Adventure Bursary




Welcome to the Ross Davis Adventure Bursary!



This money is Ross’s and he would have wanted to see it spent on an academic achievement…..whilst having a mighty fine time.


That’s different from other academic awards. Life’s too short not to have fun- Ross knew this better than anyone.



Ross was an anaesthetic SpR at Derriford Hospital, Plymouth, when he was killed by a car whilst cycling home from work.


His previous anaesthetic career had taken him to the West Dorset General Hospital at Dorchester and the Royal United Hospital in Bath , as well as Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton .


Hence this Bursary is open to the Peninsula, Bristol and Wessex Deaneries, for trainees of level ST3 (SpR 1) and above.



Our suggestions include:

Poorly funded OOPEs,

Overseas sabbaticals or courses,

Overseas/ national meetings or conferences (presenter/ author/ poster)…


Or surprise us.

(Don’t forget to tell us about the fun bit!)


Fill in the form, send it to the Honorary Secretary of SASWR (Society of Anaesthetists of the South Western Region). Include your updated CV.

All applications to be received by the 1st of May 2008.

The award will be presented at the SASWR Autumn 2008 meeting.
