International Fellowship Program Looking for City Hosts

Bookmark and Share

March 1, 2011

Every year the American Respiratory Care Foundation (ARCF) sponsors an International Fellowship Program that brings doctors, therapists, and nurses from other countries to our shores to learn more about American-style RT in two cities.

It can’t happen without city hosts in each of the localities, and now is the time to step up and volunteer. The ARCF is currently accepting applications from AARC members in metropolitan areas who would be willing to:

  • Communicate with fellows prior to their visit to ensure a smooth trip.
  • Develop an itinerary for the city activities and coordinate all activities among the various sites, including transportation between sites.
  • Provide an overview of the health care system in the United States.
  • Ensure that objectives of the Fellowship visit are met.
  • Communicate with the AARC International Respiratory Care Committee.

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy being involved in, learn more about the program and apply by the June 1 deadline. The fellowships take place in the fall just prior to the AARC International Respiratory Congress, which is scheduled this year for November 5–8 in Tampa, Florida.
