Articulated in two parts, a specific leadership development programme followed by participation as special guests at the regional WHS , the successful candidates will be exposed to an outstanding scientific and policy program attended by a global group of medical and scientific professionals.

The opportunities for sharing experiences across this international lens are unprecedented.

The candidates must show great promise for leadership in their chosen careers. They should be enthusiastic, with outstanding communication skills and the ability, desire and personality to represent the medical profession well when interacting with the outstanding professionals from multiple sectors who will be attending the Summit. We especially encourage the nomination of women.
