Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme 2020-2022 | Clinicians in Africa

IAS Educational Fund / Mark Wainberg 2020-2022 Fellowship Programme for Clinicians in Sub-Saharan Africa: Applications are Invited from Clinicians in Sub-Saharan Africa for the 2020-2022 IAS Educational Fund / Mark Wainberg  Fellowship Programme. Deadline: 20th March, 2020 See Eligibility, Benefits, Application Guidelines and Procedure.

The Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the IAS Educational Fund,  is aimed 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, who will spend one year in Europe and one year in Africa at clinical institutions.

The programme will offer in-depth training for clinicians committed to careers in HIV clinical service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of strengthening access to high-quality services for sub-Saharan Africa populations, with a client-centred service delivery approach.

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.

Eligibility.

  • Applicants must have a 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.

Benefits.

  • Fellows will receive a living allowance for the duration of the Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme. Applicants should ensure they are financially able to enroll in the 2-year programme before accepting the fellowship.

How to Apply.

Eligible candidates can apply for the Mark Wainberg Fellowship Programme by completing the electronic application form in EnglishFrench or Portuguese.

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.

Deadline
