Reach-the-World Fellowships
Share |

Our Reach-the-World Fellowship Program gives junior clinicians and researchers from developing countries (countries classified by the World Bank as low-income, lower-middle-income, or upper-middle-income) the opportunity to study at host institutes known for their expertise in thrombosis and haemostasis.

The program aims to promote knowledge and expertise in one or all of the areas of medical care, laboratory methods and/or research. As part of the program, we provide fellows with financial support for travel, accommodation and living expenses for a fellowship period of up to four months.
