Milosh Perovitch Travel Grant at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, Baltimore

Milosh Perovitch was a Yugoslav physician who spent several years of his academic career in the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution in the 1960’s and 1970's. Upon his death in 2006, he made a bequest to the JHMI Neuroradiology Division who have decided, in view of Dr. Perovitch's close ties to Europe, to offer reverse sabbaticals to Europeans willing to visit Johns Hopkins for a period one to two months. The goal of the visit will be to exchange knowledge and develop collaborations. The stipend would be used to defray the visitors' expenses for the month as a travel grant. Expenses over the allotted amount ($12,500) would have to be covered by the grantee.

The Division of Neuroradiology is now accepting applications for a visit for calendar year 2011. The application process is a 1-2 page letter addressed to David M. Yousem, Division Director, detailing:
1) Proposed material (educational, clinical, research) to be exchanged with Johns Hopkins Faculty and fellows and residents in the area of neuroradiology
2) If appropriate, proposed technique (interventional or otherwise) which could be taught/shared
3) Months of availability in 2011 and length of stay requested (up to one month)
4) Contact information for one professional reference.

Please include a CV and any reprints or PDF files appropriate for us to evaluate the proposal.

Decisions will be made based on merit and a vote of the JHMI Neuroradiology faculty.

Deadline for receipt of application for 2011 is September 30, 2010. Decisions will be made by November 30, 2010.

Please pass this on to fellow European colleagues or members of your faculty in neuroradiology.

Thank you.
