The AANEM Foundation offers International Fellowship Scholarship opportunities
for up to 5 physicians from economically developing countries to attend the 2019 AANEM Annual Meeting to be held October 16-19, 2019, in Austin, Texas. Additionally, those who submit an application but do not receive a Foundation International Fellowship Scholarship are automatically considered for travel scholarships offered through the North American Chapter of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN). The IFCN distributes up to 15 scholarships.
“The AANEM Foundation makes it possible for physicians from economically developing countries to receive quality medical education at the AANEM Annual Meeting that will help them diagnose and treat patients in their country with neuromuscular disorders,” stated AANEM Foundation Executive Director, Shirlyn A. Adkins, JD.
The eligibility criteria, application process, and scholarships
are the same for both the Foundation’s International Fellowship and the IFCN scholarships. Physicians who submit an abstract for the 2019 AANEM Annual Meeting will be given priority.

- Must have a medical degree or foreign equivalent
