Call for FOREUM International Exchange Fellowships

FOREUM is committed to funding and promoting scientific research into rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) and has a goal to foster links between rheumatology units in different countries. Consistent with these goals is the establishment of a call for international exchange fellowships that have the specific objective of facilitating the development of research capacity and training high-caliber applicants in RMD research.

FOREUM International Exchange Fellowships are intended to fund excellent research projects in the field of RMDs that address any basic, translational or clinical aspect of these conditions.

The applicant must be a rheumatologist (pediatric or adult), rheumatologist in training or health professional in rheumatology, who is appropriately linked to RMD research in one of the EULAR member countries. It is anticipated that applicants develop long-term research and clinical interest in the area of the proposal that would benefit the fellow, the home and host centers as well as the patients.

All applicants considering submission of a proposal are invited to send a short letter of intent by March 15, 2018 to FOREUM. The structure and required content of the letter of intent are described in the ‘Letter of Intent template’.
