WFSA Baxter Scholars
*To see scholarships currently open for application, please click here*
Since 2008 Baxter Healthcare Ltd has generously sponsored some 150 young anaesthetists on low incomes and working in less affluent countries to attend WFSA World and Regional Congresses. The learning gained, and networks built up, during these events have proved invaluable in identifying and supporting these future leaders in anaesthesia.
In 2014 we asked our scholars what they thought about the programme. 94% of scholars said the scholarship has positively impacted their patients. 86% identified other positive long term impacts (such as on their department / hospital). 94% would like to develop communication with other scholars. 98% would encourage their colleagues to apply for a scholarship. 98% would seize the opportunity of another scholarship.
