14 Jun Ready for the Edition 2020 of the International Fellowship Mr G Querci della Rovere
We are glad to announce that the Edition 2020 of the International Fellowship is now advertised and the job description is available here.
Once again, we are able to offer a unique opportunity to oncoplastic trainees to spent more than one year of their career in high level world renowned breast units. This International Fellowship has been established in memory of Mr Guidubaldo Querci della Rovere FRCS, Comm OMRI who was a Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Marsden Hospital where he pioneered Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery of the Breast. He dedicated the final years of his career to providing support and training for young doctors who wish to specialise in this field. This year we celebrate a decade since Mr Querci della Rovere left us.
Uccio, as he was called by friends is still remembered as a passionate physician but also a humanist, a true scientist and a special human being. He inspired my surgical career and changed my life.
When he gave me a job at the Royal Marsden I was a young trainee in search for my surgical identity. His personality, the way he managed patients through complex decisions, the very refined multidisciplinary view and his outstanding surgical competence made me very excited about a breast career.
After about twenty years since our very first meeting I still bear in my mind Uccio’s view and, day by day I discover how futuristic this was. I try to follow his predicaments everyday not only in my career but even in my life, although I may succeed at fifty percent I think this makes me a better doctor, husband and father.
