The Long-term International Fellowship (LIFe) provides early-career oncologists in developing nations the support and resources needed to advance their training by deepening their relationship with a United States or Canadian colleague and his or her institution.
Through a one year medical fellowship the recipient will earn valuable training and experience with which they can affect change in cancer care in their home country. Recipients must return to their home institutions after completing their international fellowship and are expected to disseminate the knowledge they have gained.
Eligible applicants must complete an application, which includes a section to be filled out by the prospective mentor at a cancer center in the U.S. or Canada. Applicants must also submit a curriculum vitae, as well as a letter of support from his or her home institution.
Applications for the 2013 LIFe programs are now closed. Please check back in Fall 2013 for information about 2014 programs. For more information, you may also read one of the 2013 Request for Proposals.
The 2013 LIFes are supported by:
