ISN Fellowship Program
Dear Dr Yasuhiko Tomino
With this e-mail, we would like to remind you that the forthcoming fellowship application deadline is 15 December 2010.
As shown in the graph below, there were only very few fellowships awarded to applicants from the Oceania and South East Asia region (OSEA) in 2009.
We would be very grateful if you could try to encourage applications in your region by disseminating the information and where appropriate endorsing relevant applications.
As a reminder, the ISN Fellowship Program aims to provide relevant and contemporary nephrological training to physicians from emerging countries, with the ultimate goal of improving the standards of nephrological practice in the Fellows' home countries upon their return.
For more detailed information about the Fellowship Program, please visit the Fellowship Program webpage on the ISN Gateway. We would like to invite you to consult the most recent Fellowship leaflet and application form, both of which you may wish to circulate to your contacts.
Also we would like to remind you of our current agreements with other organisations. You can find more details about these by visiting the ISN Gateway at http://www.isn-online.org/isn/society/outreach/isn_20084.html
