WCTC Traveling Fellowship

The WCTC traveling fellowship is designed to create opportunities for underrepresented physicians from all over the world who have a strong interest in developing a practice focused on the treatment of thyroid cancer.  Every four years, a grant will be awarded to 2 individuals to cover travel, hotel accommodations, and WCTC conference registration.  Through this program, we also aim to connect awardees with long-term mentorship and academic opportunities as directed by the needs and interests of the applicant.

At the conclusion of the congress, the awardee is expected to provide a brief reflection on what they have gained from the experience, how they will apply this knowledge, and provide feedback for the program. We look forward to increasing the diversity of physicians within the field of thyroid cancer globally as well as developing long-term mentorships and connections with these traveling fellows. Previous awardees are not eligible for re-application.
