Training Course And Workshop Award from European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases
 You must log
Status: Doctor, Resident

Specialty: Pediatric infectious diseases

Program's type: fellowship

Budget: Free
Information: The aim of this scheme is to fund training courses and workshops. These can be directed at clinical trainees, continuing medical education for career grade doctors or both. Applicants should indicate whether the course is intended primarily to fulfil local training needs or as a central European initiative (ESPID seeks to support both types of course but these categories are budgeted separately). However the application procedure is the same in both cases. Training courses and workshops should be clearly aimed at the development of national training programmes in Paediatric Infectious Diseases.
Speciality: pediatric infectious disease
Requirements
Budget: the maximum financial support allocated to an award will be up to Euro 16,000 (e.g. for a 1-2 day course for 15-40 delegates) with larger awards only for courses of an usually large or complex nature. Awards will normally be expected to be in the range Euro 75-150 per delegate per day, with higher costs for smaller groups, where overnight stay is required and when many delegates will have to travel significant distances. ESPID is only willing to part fund (up to a maximum of 50%) the overall costs of courses. Evidence of other income from grants, sponsorship and registration payments should be included in the budget of the application.

Clear and specific training objectives (which could involve clinical, laboratory, public health or other academic areas) are essential. The awards are not intended to support research.
Speciality: pediatric infectious disease
Requirements:
-Must be “good standing” ESPID member (click here to download the ESPID "good standing" member criteria) and membership fees must be paid up in full before your application.
-Must be a trainee paediatrician or in medical, allied health professional or scientific training in a clinical or academic centre involved in paediatrics or child health.
-Must set out specific training objectives with an explanation why these can better be met by travelling to the proposed host centre, why they will require the requested period of training that is being requested and how they will be of value to the applicant’s career development. The proposed training must be of clear relevance to the field of paediatric infectious diseases.
-Must provide a reference letter from the current supervisor in the home centre which supports the application.
-Applications from those in career posts may also be funded if there is a clear case that the relevant experience to be gained is of strategic importance and not available locally.
Budget: The awards are designed to be flexible and rapidly processed – we will aim to respond to all applications within one month. The awards will cover round trip travel costs (fixed maximum budget - see rules below) and subsistence (accommodation, food etc maximum Eur412 per week pro rata) while away. The host centre will be offered fixed funding towards their costs (Eur82.40 fixed sum for administration expenses, plus maximum Eur185.40 per week to cover infrastructure costs). These last payments will not be made to individuals.
(Thus, for example, for a four week visit, the trainee would be offered travel costs and a maximum of approx. Eur1648 and the host centre a maximum of approx. Eur800.)
