New ISN Educational Ambassador visits in collaboration with SLANH

ISN is pleased to announce that the Sociedad Latino Americana de Nefrologia y Hipertension (SLANH) has agreed to co-sponsor the Educational Ambassadors Program for a total amount of 10,000 USD a year, next to already supporting the ISN Fellowship Program for an amount of 14,000 USD every year.  Eligible candidates must come from Latin America and be a member of SLANH.

Over recent years the ISN Fellowship Program has expanded to allow opportunities for nephrologists from emerging countries to train in Host Centers in their own region of the world, rather than in North America, Europe or Australasia. Now this is also possible for candidates applying for the ISN Educational Ambassadors Program whether they are a Host Center or an Ambassador.

Candidates must submit their applications using the standard ISN Educational Ambassador application procedure. CLICK HERE for further information.

The next ISN Educational Ambassador Program deadline is October 1st, 2014CLICK HERE. Applications for ISN-SLANH Educational Ambassador visits will be evaluated competitively by the ISN Educational Ambassador Program Committee alongside all other applications for the ISN Educational Ambassador Program.
