The next application deadline is 5th April, 2019.
Applicants must submit a one-page proposal indicating the course they wish to attend or the name(s) of the institutions they would visit and the reasons for their choice. They should also submit an estimate of the costs involved and letters from their present employer indicating that they are in agreement with the proposal. If their proposed expenses exceed the value of the award, then they should also indicate the source for the additional funds required. For a visit to an institution the candidate must have that institution write to the Registrar in support of the visit. The candidate should also provide their curriculum vitae and the names and phone numbers of two references that the selection committee can contact. No reference letters are required. The selection committee reserves the right to contact additional individuals or institutions.
A panel appointed by the Board of the College will choose the award recipient. Their choice will be based upon 1) the written proposal submitted by the candidate, 2) references obtained by the committee and 3) membership exam results. The award will be announced at the Annual General Meeting of the College. Recipients will have two years after their application deadline to complete their travel and will be required to submit a short report to the InterACTIONS newsletter.
Applicants who are unsuccessful in any one year and still eligible in subsequent years may have their applications considered again by writing to the Registrar and providing any necessary updated information.
Applications should be sent to the Registrar of the Canadian College of Physicists in Medicine at:
