Global Haematology Visiting Fellow*
The Global Haematology SIG supports three Visiting Fellowships for visits to or from Lower and Middle Income countries for visitors to gain experience in a different field or to learn new research. It is desirable but not essential that these educational visits are in the framework of a well-defined institutional link and/or training programme within the overseas institution. If such links do not exist then it would be helpful to suggest how the fellowship could contribute to developing such a framework or programme in the future.
*Please note that the LMIC Visiting Fellowship is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change prior to the next deadline. Please contact our grants team if you have any queries, and check back here for further details.
