The Institute of Tropical Medicine invites applications for the ITM’S Journalist-in-Residence Programme 2018 open to reporters, producers, and editors to work on an exciting project in the realm of tropical medicine and global health (a documentary, or a series of articles, for instance).

The selected journalist will interact with world experts in a wide range of topics in biomedical sciences, clinical sciences and public health. As ITM journalist-in-residence, s/he will have time to explore different areas or delve deeply into a single topic. There is also plenty of opportunities to participate in a variety of scientific meetings, seminars and other learning experiences, as well as enjoy quiet time for reading and independent study.

The initiative is part of ITM’s capacity building programme in developing countries financed by the Belgian Directorate-General for Development (DGD). This year’s edition is the fifth Journalist-in-Residence programme. Last year,  ITM exceptionally welcomed four journalists-in-residence who came to Antwerp on the occasion of the 10th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International health which brought 1500 participants to Antwerp.
