ISN Fellowship Program: Announcing 2019 Fellows from second round of applicationsiclaron
The ISN congratulates 22 new 2019 Fellows after the second round of applications. The successful applicants come from all over the globe: Africa, Latin America, NIS and Russia, and South Asia.
The ISN fellowship program http://fellowship.theisn.org/ provides tailor-made training from host institutions to health care professionals from low-resource countries. The Fellows aim to improve kidney health care in their home countries by implementing their newly acquired knowledge and experience. Since 1985, over 800 nephrologists worldwide have benefited from both long and short-term ISN fellowships.
Training is given primarily in clinical nephrology and transplantation but other areas, such as pediatric nephrology and peritoneal dialysis, are also covered.
This year, the ISN awarded the first IACN-ISN-HKSN (International Association of Chinese Nephrologists; International Society of Nephrology; Hong Kong Society of Nephrology) scholarship within the Fellowship Program to Ling Pan from the in China. Ling Pan will undertake a three-month training course supervised by Dr Ming-Hui Zhao at the Beijing University Institute of Nephrology in China. This initiative supports young nephrologists living and working in China who are looking for short-term training in either their home country or Hong Kong and is co-funded by the International Association of Chinese Nephrologists (IACN) and the Hong Kong Society of Nephrology (HKSN) alongside the ISN.
ISN thanks the following sponsors for their involvement in this project: Asia Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN); British Renal Association; Elsevier; International Association of Chinese Nephrologists (IACN); Hong Kong Society of Nephrology (HKSN); Kidneys for Life; Kidney Research UK; The Schrier Fund.
