Research award for presentations at WONCA World conference

Dear colleagues

The Taiwan Family Medicine Research Award (TFMRA) was established by the Chinese Taipei Association of Family Medicine in 2008. The TFMRA was founded to encourage junior family physicians to conduct research in the specialty of family medicine. It will support three junior family physicians to attend the WONCA World Conference.

TFMRA offers a prize of USD 1,500 each to three young family physicians for the excellence of their research, to enable them to attend the WONCA World Conference in Seoul. The TFMRA winners are encouraged to present their research papers (if abstract is accepted) and to accept their award from the President of the Chinese Taipei Association of Family Medicine at the WONCA World Conference.

One out of the three award winners must be from the Asia Pacific region.

The original deadline for applications was 31st March, but to date we have received only one application (from Spain). Deadline has now been extended to 30th April, so could I please ask you to promote the award as widely as possible within your region, to encourage young researchers to apply for what is a very useful bursary to assist in attend the Seoul conference. Further details are on the WONCA website.
