Supporting medical students in training
As well as supporting local leprosy centres across the world, St Francis Leprosy Guild provides grants for medical students so they can experience leprosy at first hand and work alongside those who are caring for people with the disease. It may take years, and possibly decades, to beat leprosy for good so we hope our medical electives will be inspired to continue fighting the disease in the future. We are pleased to be receiving a growing number of applications and usually award two grants to medical students each year.
New grant applications
We would be interested to hear from medical students who wish to study abroad and whose studies are primarily concerned with the care and treatment of leprosy. Please contact email@example.com to request an application pack.
