Eligibility and application

Our funding for training or work shadowing abroad is open to health care professionals and managers from all health care occupations in Germany, provided they are involved in the care of chronically ill or multimorbid patients. This includes, for example, nursing and care professionals, those in the therapy professions, doctors, social workers and pharmacologists, but also telemedicine experts. Both individuals and interprofessional teams may apply.

If you would like to propose a training opportunity you have found yourself, you may submit your application at any time. From 1 September 2019 we won’t have any invitation phases for submitting your own ideas.

Applicant selection and support/funding

Within four weeks of the submission deadline, participants will be selected by a panel of experts. They will receive a letter with a participation form and the conditions of approval for the CfCC programme. The support offered by the programme comprises a grant towards work shadowing, seminar and conference fees and another for travel and accommodation costs. We also offer advice on content and organisational issues throughout the entire process.

The follow-up phase includes a transfer workshop, which is also subsidised.
Finally, in a concluding symposium, the lessons learned from the experience will be presented to a broad professional audience.

Your stay abroad, preparation and follow-up

To help you prepare for your training or work shadowing, we would like to give you some tips to make sure you get the most out of your stay abroad.
Please note that the CfCC project team does not organise your travel or accommodation, so you will need to arrange these yourself.
For the follow-up phase of your stay and to help you with your final report, we have put together a template that you can print out.
