LATAM Scholarship


The IHU Strasbourg has set up a LATAM Scholarship program to promote the contact between medical researchers and to expand the scientific cooperation between France and Latin American and Caribbean countries. The French “Instituts Hospitalo-Universitaires” (IHU) are centers of scientific and medical excellence, with a strong focus on image-guided interventions at the IHU-Strasbourg.

This LATAM fellowship offers young professionals from Latin American and Caribbean countries the opportunity to participate for a one-year term at the IHU Strasbourg in several research and education projects in the field of image-guided therapies.

The aim is to select promising candidates and their research projects, thereby targeting to support their academic career. Upon the scholars’ return to their home institution, the acquired skills and experience will promote research and medical education at their home country, as well as the continuation of joint projects.


  • The LATAM fellowship is open to candidates living in Latin American or Caribbean countries at the time of application.
  • Applicants must be graduated from medical schools and have completed residency training in surgery, radiology or gastroenterology.
  • Sound English skills are a prerequisite, whereas French language skills are an asset (but not mandatory).
  • The LATAM Scholarships for Research in Image-Guided Therapy are only valid in the year for which they are designated.
    They cannot be postponed.
  • The application forms for IHU fellowship programs are available online
    Please refer to the LATAM scholarship when submitting your set of application documents via email to fellowship@ihu-strasbourg.eu
