EXPERIENCE FAMILY MEDICINE IN AUSTRIA
The Preconference Exchange
Are you curious how the Austrian health care system works? Come and discover how family medicine is organised in Austria. After an online kick-off event on Sunday night prior to the exchange, you have the opportunity to experience family medicine in Austria from Tuesday 9 April 2024 to Thursday 11 April 2024. We are proud to announce that family doctors in different Austrian regions volunteered to welcome you and allow you a glimpse into their daily work. Therefore, you will be able to exchange different impressions on family medicine in Austria (rural vs. urban, single practice vs. group practice vs. primary health care centre) at the get-together meeting on Thursday 11 April in Vienna.
Please send your letter of motivation and your curriculum vitae to your national exchange coordinator who will rank the applications from your country according to the EYFDM guidelines. If you don't know your national exchange coordinator please ask your national EYFDM organisation or have a look at the EYFDM Website. If your country doesn't have a national exchange coordinator, you can email us your application directly to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: "EYFDM Exchange – name of your country"). We are eager to learn about your motivation to come to Austria for the exchange, whether you have special interests in a specific setting (rural vs urban, group vs single practice), your current field of employment and future career plans as well as your language skills. A good understanding of English or German are expected from all applicants. Generally you are expected to organise your trip and accomodation for the exchange yourself. But please let us know if accommodation with a family doctor is of interest.
Application Deadline: The national exchange coordinators (and applicants from countries without a national exchange coordinator) need to forward the applications by 14 october 2023 (extended deadline!) to email@example.com
Confirmation of selection will be announced by the end of November 2023.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Austria in 2024! 🙂
