Effective healthcare institutions need effective leaders. Still, many young professionals have to learn their leadership skills almost by trial and error as too few countries are actually providing the necessary training. To fill this gap, we are seeking candidates for the 9th IAP Young Physician Leaders (YPL) Programme to be held on 24-29 October 2019 in conjunction with the World Health Summit in Berlin, Germany, 27-29 October 2019.
This IAP programme will once more have the collaboration of the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) with the support of the Tides Foundation, the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Bayer Science & Education Foundation.
We are seeking to identify up to 20 outstanding Young Physician Leaders under the age of 40.
Nominations will be accepted from members of the InterAcademy Partnership and the ‘M8 Alliance’ of academic centres only. Each organization can nominate a maximum of two eligible physicians below the age of 40. For your nominations, kindly use the online form. Deadline for nominations is 30 June 2019.
A committee of medical and scientific professionals appointed by the IAP Executive Committee will review all applications and select the candidates who best fit the criteria outlined above. Successful candidates will be contacted the in early August 2018 with further details, precise dates and procedures.
Successful candidates will have their local accommodation and meal costs covered and WHS registration will be waived. Participants from low and middle income countries will be provided with partial travel support if required. The travel to Berlin of accepted nominees from high-income countries is expected to be covered by the nominating academy/M8 Alliance member.
