Application and Selection Procedures for Volunteer Educational Ambassadors
ISN Global Outreach Programs invite all ISN members to volunteer to become Educational Ambassadors.
Eligibility criteria for individuals who wish to become an ISN Educational Ambassador are:
Please send a duly completed and signed application form to the ISN headquarters together with your CV. There is no specific deadline for submission of applications .
Applications can be submitted throughout the year. A board of reviewers will assess your application before you are formally approved as an ISN Educational Ambassador. You will be informed about the outcome of your application within a month.
Once approved, we will include some details related to your professional background in a database of approved volunteers, which is published on the ISN Gateway. Please note however that we will not include any contact details and you will always be approached by the ISN Headquarters to promote contact with the center requesting training.
Please note that ISN cannot be held liable for any consequences related to travelling or staying abroad. The responsibility for procuring health/accident and travel insurances remains with the Educational Ambassador. You or your relatives cannot hold ISN responsible in the event of untoward events or experiences.
Application and Selection Procedures for requesting centers
Emerging centers which wish to apply to receive the visit of a teacher or expert to deliver specific training should submit their application to the ISN Headquarters by May 1st at the latest as a full package including the following documents:
Duly completed application form – jointly signed by the host center, proposed expert (if available) and relevant regional committee representative (click here to find their contact details).
Application form by the trainer and his/her CV - if the proposed expert is not yet listed as an ISN Educational Ambassador (the list can be found here),
The applicant or a representative of the host center MUST be an active ISN member. Your application will not be considered if the ISN membership is not in good order.
It is also a requirement that the center confirms its adherence to the Declaration of Istanbul
Incomplete applications will not be eligible for assessment by the board of reviewers. Your application will be judged incomplete if you haven’t identified a suitable expert.
ATTENTION! It is important for you to have established some contact with a trainer before applying to the program.
As of 2012, the Educational Ambassadors Program has launched a Matching Initiative to further encourage and support global nephrology training. This gives the opportunity to applying centers in the developing countries to find, through the ISN Headquarters, an appropriate ISN ambassador for a specific training need in the field of renal medicine.
Should you wish to receive some support from ISN to identify a suitable trainer, take a look at the current list of ISN Educational Ambassadors and send a request form to the ISN headquarters well in advance of the deadline of 1st May in order to allow sufficient time to find an appropriate expert for your needs and establish some preliminary contact with him/her.
