As part of fulfilling its mandate to drive the implementation of research evidence and outcomes into primary health care services planning and delivery, APHCRI has established partnerships with international research centres in primary health care. APHCRI routinely offers International Visiting Fellowships for Australian early career researchers at the following centres,
- The Robert Graham Centre (RGC), Washington DC
- Radboud University Medical Centre (Radboudumc), Nijmegen, The Netherlands
- The Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES), Ontario, Canada
The RGC Fellowship has been offered annually since 2007 but the Radboudumc and the ICES Fellowships were first offered in 2014. Preference across all awards is given to applicants who can demonstrate formal links with a research centre (e.g. a university department of general practice or rural clinical school), so that the Fellow can be appropriately mentored and can contribute to that centre’s development upon completion of the Fellowship.
