IAS Educational Fund Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme 2019
The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the IAS Educational Fund, aims at contributing to improving the quality of HIV service delivery in resource-limited settings by providing two-year fellowships to five clinicians from sub-Saharan Africa
Many African countries face an unmet need in the training of medical practitioners who want to become specialized in HIV. HIV medicine sub-specialization is not attractive for many young healthcare professionals, which is in sharp contrast to the need for such specialized personnel and leadership in the hardest-hit countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019, 23:59 CET.
To be eligible for the Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Terminal research degree as a medical doctor (or equivalent)
- Minimum of two years’ clinical experience
- Currently working in sub-Saharan Africa
- Commitment to become a specialist in HIV
- English, French or Portuguese speaking.
Please have a scanned copy of your terminal research degree and letter of support from your institution ready to upload at the time of application.
The deadline for applications is 1 March 2019, 23:59 CET. Applications not submitted through the online system will not be accepted.
