Visiting Scholars Program

The application period for the Visiting Scholars Program is now closed. Please note that all applicants will be notified of the status of their application via e-mail.

The IAOMS Foundation announces the new IAOMS Foundation Visiting Scholarships, designed as an opportunity for young specialist members of IAOMS to travel to other countries and visit, for short periods, prestigious OMS Departments to enhance their postgraduate education. The Scholarship recipients will select from prominent training centers where they will have the opportunity to observe and study with top surgeons and professors.

Thanks to the generous support from the Osteo Science Foundation, the IAOMS Foundation will award six Scholarships in 2019​. Each Scholarship will last between two and four weeks in duration. A stipend will be awarded along with each Scholarship to offset travel and housing costs.

We are sure that this program will contribute to the progress of the specialty worldwide by promoting the educational and human exchange between young specialists.
