Dear Junior members

Also for 2018 we will continue the successful junior member fellow exchange program with the JPCCS in Japan. Junior members from the AEPC can apply for this fellow exchange program and three will be selected to visit a pediatric cardiology institute in Japan for a training period of 4 weeks between October 2018 and August 2019.  Also three  fellows from Japan will visit European institutes in the same period. If you are interested to apply for the exchange program you have to provide a letter of intent with your major scientific/clinical interests, a short CV, and a signed letter of support by your supervisor allowing you to visit Japan for 4 weeks. The deadline for the application is September 15th 2018. Once you are selected, you will be appointed to one of the three host institutes in Japan. You can then plan the best time slot for the visit to Japan in consultation with your host institute. The AEPC is paying the ticket to Japan as well as 1000 euro pocket money to cover for accommodation and daily expenses.  You will have to pay in advance and get reimbursed. The host institute can help you  find cheap accommodation during your stay.  You will find more information on the AEPC website
