Developing Countries Neurology
Up to two short term fellowships will be awarded each year to neurologists from Eastern Europe (in former Warsaw pact countries) and countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (on the OECD’s List of ODA Recipients). The fellowships are intended for clinicians who wish to spend up to three months in a UK Clinical Neurology department. These Fellowships have been established in memory of the late Professor John Newsom-Davis, a former editor of Brain, through the generous support of friends and colleagues.
The visit can be to obtain further clinical or laboratory experience.
Eligibility: Applicants must be currently based in Eastern Europe or countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (on the OECD’s List of ODA Recipients).
Level of funding: The awards will provide a maximum of £1500 per month to support travel and living costs.
Additional information: Applicants should submit their CV and a two page summary of the aims of the visit, with details of costs to be incurred, and signed letters of recommendation from their current Head of Department and from the Head of Department of the host institution in the UK.
