We support disadvantaged colleagues via the EYFDM Fund
EYFDM Fund Bursaries
The money in the EYFDM Fund is protected and dedicated to provide bursaries to support EYFDM Members to participate in EYFDM Events, especially the Forum and the Pre-Conference/WONCA Europe Conference. We use the EYFDM Fund especially to support those who have low income, as well as those who are new to EYFDM , in the hopes that they would be inspired to become active members in the long term, aiding in spreading the EYFDM Spirit across Europe.
Launched in 2012 at the initiative of VdGM Past President Sven Streit, the EYFDM Fund Bursaries have helped many new and future family doctors to attend such meetings.
How to apply for the EYFDM Fund Bursaries?
Applications open at least once a year, ahead of the EYFDM Forum/Preconference. You will be required to fill in an application form and follow the instructions provided therein.
Any donations you give us are 100% used for the EYFDM Fund, and therefore 100% given to new or low-income members to be able to participate! The more donations we receive, the more we can support our members.
Individual donations and the purchase of the “I Support the EYFDM Fund” badge can usually be made at the EYFDM booth during the WONCA Europe Conferences and EYFDM events.
National Colleges, Scientific Associations and Junior GP/FM Associations are also welcomed to make donations to the Fund.
If you wish to make a donation, contact us. We will be more than happy to guide you and provide any information,
We extend our gratitude to all individual GPs/FPs who have so far supported the Fund through donations as well as the additional support generously provided by WONCA Europe, The College of Family Physicians in Poland, JHaS, SGAIM/SSMIG/SSGIM and SBOH.
