Share your care

Junior Exchange Programme of the European Burns Association

Everyone who has had the chance to spend a prolonged period of time in another country and at other hospitals knows that these experiences lead to new discoveries and allow us to extend our knowledge base, make new friends and strengthen relationships with our colleagues.

Broadening horizons, becoming familiar with new techniques and alternative treatments and creating stronger  connections with peers – ultimately all of this benefits our patients.

It is for these reason that EBA has set up a Junior Exchange Programme for the first time.
This was possible thanks to the generous financial support of INTEGRA

The exchange programme consists of three distinct branches:

  1. Share and Foster
  2. Travel for support
  3. Visit and expand

The 3 branches vary in their objective, their entry requirements, the amount of financial support and the duration of the programme. Please find the relevant information below:
