Avon Global Breast Cancer Clinical Scholars Program: 2016 Guidelines


The Avon Global Clinical Breast Cancer Scholars Program provides clinically-focused scholarship opportunities for breast cancer specialists from outside the United States to receive advanced training at a leading U.S. breast cancer center affiliated with the Avon Foundation for Women. The Avon Global Scholars will take advanced skills back to their home countries to improve treatment and care of women facing breast cancer. The program will bring up to 20 outstanding clinician scholars to Avon Foundation-funded breast cancer centers in the U.S. for a 4-week intensive training/preceptorship for them to learn or become expert at new clinical skills. Due to medical malpractice laws in the U.S., these preceptorships will primarily be observational in nature. The exact work plan for the Scholar’s activities and goals will be developed jointly by the Scholar and Mentor during the course of the application process and beyond.
