The WONCA Europe Scholarship

With the aim of scouting out future international leaders of Family Medicine / General Practice, WONCA Europe awards a 2–4 year scholarship programme on an annual basis.

Candidates will be asked to propose a programme, which would support their personal and professional growth, as well as a mentor who will follow them during the duration of the programme. An annual sum of up to €2,000 per scholar is made available to support such activities.

Examples of activities include

  • Attending WONCA Network meetings
  • Participating in a FM360 exchange
  • Visiting a Family Medicine Department, or the WHO 
  • Reviewing a health policy document
