Through our philanthropic arm, Unconventional Volunteering, we aim to introduce Australian doctors to the world of medical volunteering through short term placements in the developing world.

It is with pleasure that we offer a scholarship for 2 Australian GPs to work in the Uluru Health Care Centre in Alamparai village, south of Chennai, in Tamil Nadu State, India.

The scholarship includes return economy class airfares to Chennai, transfers, accommodation and meals in a home-stay, hosted by a local family.

The Scholarship program coincides with the Unconventional Conventions Southern India optional pre-conference tour, where the volunteers will speak to the group about their experiences living and working in the local community. The Scholarship winners will also be required to write an article about their experience to encourage others to get involved.

Scholarship Application Criteria:

– Have been in practice for at least ten years

– Have current registration with the AHPRA

– Provide an up-to-date resume, showing evidence of your special interests as a practising GP

Program dates : Saturday 18 February to Monday 6 March 2017

Applications close 9th December 2017
