At our last meeting, it was suggested-  to approach the CF foundation to broaden the eligibility requirements for clinical fellowship awards to include non-US citizens (ie. J-1 or H-1B visas). So, we sent our plea to Hank Dorkin, Chair of the Professional Education Committee (see attached letter) who has forwarded it to the committee to evaluate. The glucophage Medical Advisory Council would need to review it and then send to the Board of Trustees for final approval. So, it will unlikely change for this year, but has the potential for next year.
We’ll keep you posted!
