ISQua Fellowship Internship Programme
The ISQua Fellowship Internship Programme was launched in 2015. This programme offers ISQua Fellowship participants and graduates an opportunity to spend time with a leading organisation in health care quality and safety, gain experience from the way in which the organisation works and expand their network.
Two interns, Girish Swaminathan and Dr Tamer Farahat were awarded internships with AGPAL/QIP in 2016. Find out about their learning experience on the Internship Programme.
AGPAL/QIP Internship partner for 2017
