Travel Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
  • Must have a medical degree or foreign equivalent
  • Must reside and/or practice in an economically developing country
  • Must have an interest in neuromuscular and/or electrodiagnostic medicine
The AANEM Foundation’s International Fellowship and IFCN scholarship recipients receive:
