The exchange scholarship will enable winning applicants to travel to Buenos Aires to take part in a placement at an Infectious Diseases Unit for up to 2 weeks. The programme will provide a unique opportunity to increase understanding and to gain experience of the treatment and management of infectious diseases overseas and for scholars to disseminate this information and experience when they return to the UK.
In exchange, a scholar from Argentina will travel to the UK to take part in a placement at an infectious diseases unit. Winning UK applicants will be responsible for organising the placement of the oversees exchange scholar at their hospital and for sourcing suitable accommodation for their stay.
