FAIMER is now inviting applications for the 2019 Student Projects for Health competition! The Student Projects for Health competition is supported by GEMx—a global partnership for educational exchange in medicine and the health professions—and FAIMER, and will be a feature of the annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). The 2019 conference will be held September 10-13, 2019, in Darwin, Australia. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee. The theme of the conference is Social Accountability: From Evidence to Action. Winners will be invited to attend the conference and present posters about their projects. The award includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
Now in its fifth year, the Student Projects for Health competition recognizes students who have made outstanding contributions to projects that successfully promote community health and well-being. It is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in any course of study who have been participating in such projects. Approximately 15 winners will be selected and more than one student from the same project may be selected, so all key contributors are encouraged to apply. Each application will require an endorsement by a faculty member closely associated with the project.
Applications will be considered by a distinguished group of international reviewers with a wide variety of expertise in health professions education. Detailed information on selection criteria can be found here.
The deadline for application is March 8, 2019. To apply, click here.
