ACP International Fellowship Exchange Program

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2019-2020 program year! 

More information for the 2020/2021 program will be available in April 2020. Please check back. 

ACP's International Fellowship Exchange Program (IFEP) provides opportunities for early-mid career physicians from outside the United States and Canada to gain expertise in a focused area relating to the prevention, diagnosis, and/or management of a clinical problem in Internal Medicine and the subspecialties. Through observation, mentorship, and study of the work of senior faculty physicians, fellows will acquire knowledge, experience, and skills that they can apply, utilize, and disseminate to colleagues upon return to their home country. Faculty mentors will engage fellows in individual and group clinical and educational experiences and discussions, and facilitate the design of an independent project to be implemented in each fellow's own country upon his or her return.
