Click para aumentar

Dear Colleague,


This is to inform you that the next deadline to apply to the ISN Fellowship Program is December 15, 2012.

We would be delighted if you could encourage applications in your region by disseminating the information to

your network and contacts.

As you are aware the ISN Fellowship Program aims to provide relevant and contemporary nephrological training

to physicians from emerging countries, with the ultimate goal of improving the standards of nephrological practice

in the Fellows' home countries upon their return.

For more detailed information about the Fellowship Program, please visit the Fellowship Program webpage on the

ISN Gateway. We would also like to invite you to consult the most recent Fellowship booklet and application form

both of which can be circulated to your contacts.

More and more ISN encourages applications for intra-regional trainings. In this context, we have established a number

of agreements with some other partnering organizations.
