Educational Stipend Application - Internal Medicine and Pediatric Students, Residents and Fellows

The National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana (NKFL) invites Internal Medicine and Pediatric students, residents and fellows to apply for sponsorship to attend its Spring Clinical Meetings (SCM) to be held March 25-29, 2020, in New Orleans, LA.

The intent of this sponsorship program is to encourage highly qualified and interested individuals to enter the field of nephrology. We hope that by providing Internal Medicine and Pediatric students, residents and fellows a concentrated exposure to the cutting edge in clinical and experimental nephrology in a stimulating learning environment, we may be able to shed light on the broader aspects of our subspecialty than what house staff experience on the wards in their day to day routine. The program is intended for those individuals who may be interested in, but are not already committed to, a Nephrology fellowship program.

Selected applicants will receive complimentary registration to the SCM, as well as travel grants of up to $500, depending upon travel distance. While we recognize that house staff often have difficulty getting coverage at their home institutions for their travel, acceptance of a travel grant means that the individual will be present from at least Thursday, March 26, through Saturday, March 28. For questions, please contact Torie Kranze

Application Deadline: January 15, 2020
