Education support bursary

European Diploma in Pain Medicine education support bursary

The European Pain Federation EFIC are providing bursaries for 30 participants of the Examination for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine (EDPM).

The bursary will cover the full registration fee of the Examination (including any VAT applicable), meaning participants will only need to cover any travel and accommodation costs.

Applicants are asked to register as normal and pay the registration fee. Bursaries will be distributed 2 months before the date of the Examination; before the 15th February 2019. Recipients will have their registration fee reimbursed shortly after this date.

The deadline for bursaries is Sunday 10th February

Bursary recipients will be chosen based on;

  • Age and career stage, with a focus on early-to-mid career professionals
  • Geographical distribution, with the aim to encourage participation from the widest range of countries possible, and to encourage participation from lower income countries. Applicants from EFIC chapter countries will be prioritised.

The European Diploma in Pain Medicine Education Support Bursary is provided through the kind support of Grünenthal GmbH.

The European Pain Federation EFIC organise the Examination independently, including the development and review of content, pedagogy, review of applications, and marking.

Bursary recipients will be chosen by the European Pain Federation EFIC, via consultation with the Examination Committee and the Educational and Financial Support Committee.

The Examination will not necessarily be limited to 30 participants, and self-paying participants are encouraged. EFIC will not discriminate between recipients of bursaries and self-paying participants when administering the Examination.
