You will need to apply for the fellowship at least 6-12 months before.

You will be required to provide a supporting letter from your local paediatric endocrinologist and a copy of your CV.

Deadlines will be the 1st June & 1st December each year.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview via remote interview.
