American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) International Physician Scholarship 2019


Application Deadline: August 1st 2019

The International Physician Scholarship Fund was established to provide access to quality education for physicians who reside in low and middle income countries (as defined by World Bank) to attend and participate in the Annual Assembly.

This scholarship program provides financial support (up to $5,000) to scholarship recipients to cover ordinary costs associated with attending the Annual Assembly registration and travel-related expenses, including air fare, taxi fare, meals, and lodging. At the Annual Assembly, scholarship recipients will gain access to the latest clinical information and research updates in hospice and palliative care from leading experts in the field.


Scholarships are available to physicians who work in hospice and
palliative medicine and who care for seriously ill patients. Eligible
physicians must permanently reside in low and middle income countries as
defined by World Bank. It is our hope that the scholarship recipients
will share the knowledge attained from the Annual Assembly to improve
the palliative care offerings in their home country. Preference will be
given to applicants who are

  • members of the AAHPM – physicians who reside in a low or middle
    income country as defined by the World Bank & the HINARI list of
    eligible countries are eligible for a complimentary international
  • have not previously attended the Annual Assembly
  • are junior in their career with 2-10 years of experience primarily
    in palliative care, including a resident or fellow, focused on studying
    palliative care, and
  • whose organizations are considered least able to afford this opportunity.
