The Travelling Fellowship was reviewed in 2020 in light of the global pandemic which has restricted travel. We have also revised the Fellowship to take account of the increasing financial constraints that are being experienced by our members. The Fellowship will be reviewed annually to ensure it is best meeting the needs of our AAAPC members.
The following are guidelines applicable to the AAAPC Travelling Fellowship 2020 only.
The aims of the Fellowship are to:
Applications are welcome for amounts up to $1000. Fellowships must be used in the year specified in the application process. A total fellowship pool of $3000 is available.
One fellowship of up to $1000 will be specifically allocated to a First Nations applicant (eligible application dependent).
Sajal Saha, 2021 recipient
Sajal Saha is an academic pharmacist and a commonwealth scholar in the UK. He also graduated with a Master of Public Health with distinction and a prestigious John Griffith Prize from the University of Leeds, UK. Saha is a Pan Canadian Transdisciplinary Understanding on Training and Research in Primary Health Care (TUTOR-PHC) Trainee 2020. He is currently a PhD fellow of the Department of General Practice of Monash University and the National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Australia.
Saha wants to use the AAAPC fellowship in conducting a workshop involving GPs, pharmacists and stakeholders to refine the GP-pharmacist antimicrobial stewardship (GPPAS) model designed as part of his doctoral program for future feasibility testing in optimising antimicrobial(s) use in Australian primary care, and presenting at the AAAPC Annual Research Conference in 2021. He believes that this grant will help him to generate a NHMRC investigator grant building upon the developed GPPAS model through building a solid network among Monash University, University of Toronto and the University of Melbourne.
