This extends to senior students participating in external clinical training programs. Eligible students may partially be funded for programs they participate in, with the funds partially covering program fees, accommodation fees, travel fees, and/or visa fees.

 

Also, students can apply for and may receive partial reimbursement for medical conferences that they attend to present their work in, either locally or internationally. Furthermore, students looking to publish their research papers in esteemed journals can apply for funding as well.
