IACA Traveling Fellowship
The original Traveling Fellowship program was initiated in 2007 and involved bringing cancer specialists from the Indian subcontinent to the U.S. for focused training in a specific medical skill or technique. The Traveling Fellowship has been generously supported by the Kapoor Foundations from 2013 to 2016.
The Fellowship allows doctors from the Indian subcontinent to travel to the United States to take part in observerships at renowned institutions, most of which are comprehensive cancer centers. At these host institutions, each Fellow is paired with a mentor based on their area of interest.
Preference is given to candidates whose institutions champion low cost or free medical services to underserved populations and also provide teaching and training to post-graduate medical, pediatric, or surgical doctors.
