The IMA World Fellowship assists physicians planning to further their professional studies abroad by offering grants. For many years, World Fellowship chapters donated grants and scholarships, thanks to which hundreds of Israeli physicians were able to further their professional education overseas. The Israeli Medical Association, as well as other Israeli medical organizations and institutions, have also contributed to the worthy cause of advancing Israeli medicine by enhancing the knowledge of gifted physicians.
These physicians not only contribute their professional knowledge, but serve as representatives of the State of Israel and Israeli medicine abroad.
The World Fellowship Grants Committee convenes once a year to evaluate prospective candidates.
The grants are presented at a special ceremony attended by IMA management, grantees and their families and representatives of the donors. As the grants are presented in memory of deceased physicians, the ceremony gains an added dimension of significance. Invited speakers eulogize the physicians and loved ones are invited to attend.
Grant request forms may be viewed in the attached file (in Hebrew). Please note the deadline and other criteria which must be adhered to. Grants are awarded in June.
In the new spirit of its activities, the WF is encouraging its chapters to raise funds in order to send their young members to Israel to participate in Fellowship programs, learn more about the Israeli medical system and maintain the bond between Israeli physicians and their colleagues around the world.
