training course participants
In 2015 IOF member societies in more than 10 countries will hold meetings and workshops to advance health professional training in their countries.

IOF has a long tradition of endorsing or offering financial support for selected upcoming meetings organized by its member societies and scientific experts. The endorsement is not only an important aspect of IOF’s mission to promote medical advance, it also recognizes the vital role of IOF member societies in furthering health professional outreach and education at the country level.
