Make a difference: Become an IAMAT Scholar

IAMAT’s Travel Medicine Scholarship program is a unique initiative providing healthcare practitioners with the knowledge and practice to become recognized practitioners in travel medicine.

Our scholarships are the only ones of their kind supporting doctors and nurses from countries where travel medicine is an emerging specialty.

IAMAT scholars attend intensive travel medicine short courses and participate in clinical observations at travel clinics. Upon completing their training, scholars return home to lend their expertise in travel medicine and improve health standards in their community, benefitting local patients and travellers.

If you are interested in travel medicine and passionate about improving healthcare in your community, find out how you can become the next IAMAT scholar below.
