ECFMG’s nonprofit foundation, the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER®), is currently inviting applications for the 2017 Student Projects for Health competition. The Student Projects for Health competition is supported by ECFMG’s GEMxSM program and FAIMER, and will be a feature of the 2017 annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). The 2017 conference, which will feature the World Summit on Social Accountability, will be held April 8-12, 2017, in Hammamet, Tunisia. The theme of the conference is Improving the Impact of Educational Institutions on People’s Health. Winners will be invited to attend the conference and present posters about their projects. The award includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
Now in its third year, the Student Projects for Health competition recognizes students who have made outstanding contributions to projects that successfully promote community health and well-being. It is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in any course of study who have been participating in such projects. Approximately 15 winners will be selected and more than one student from the same project may be selected, so all key contributors are encouraged to apply. Each application will require an endorsement by a faculty member closely associated with the project.
