The Polish School of Medicine Memorial Fund supports a thriving scholarship programme which enables successful applicants to undertake a period of further study or research at The University of Edinburgh Medical School and related institutions. 

The scholarship enables medical scientists at the outset of their careers to undertake a period of further study or research at the University’s Medical School and return to Poland.

The Scholarship
The scholarship consists of a subsistence allowance paid to the successful scholar for periods of 1-6 months but may be up to one year. It does not cover research costs, laboratory costs/ bench fees or travel to and from Poland.

The programme is open to Polish medical scientists

  • in their early career (usually within 10 years of their medical graduation – MB ChB equivalent)
  • working in Polish Medical Academies/Universities and Research Institutes
  • with excellent mastery of English and  
  • committed to the further development of medical research expertise in Poland.

Note: The expectation and intention of the founders of the Polish School of Medicine Memorial Fund Scholarship Programme is that successful applicants should return to their units/departments in Poland on completion of their attachment/studies, use their new found skills to further enhance and develop Polish medicine and thus foster academic links between Polish Medical Universities and Research Institutes and The University of Edinburgh.

Applications for the academic year 2014/5: Applications will be considered from candidates eligible and wishing to apply for a 1 year taught Masters programme/Masters by research offered at The University of Edinburgh College of Medicine, Masters by distance learning, or short taught course (such as the Summer School in Clinical Education or the Concepts of Epidemiology Course) or a research attachment provided that the applicant has the full support of their Head of Department and Polish Medical University authorities.
