Milosh Perovich 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 bequeathed a modest sum of money to the Neuroradiology Division of JHMI. The annual interest on this money amounts to about $10,000 per year and the JHMI neuroradiology division has, in deference to Dr. Perovich’s close ties to Europe, created reverse sabbaticals to Europeans willing to visit our Division for a period from 2-4 weeks, depending upon the visitor’s budgetary constraints. The goal of the visit is to exchange knowledge and develop collaborations. The stipend would be used to defray the visitors’ expenses for the month as a travel grant. Expenses above this allotted amount would have to be covered by the grantee.
The Division of Neuroradiology is now accepting applications for a visit for calendar year 2017. The application process is a 1-2 page letter addressed to David M. Yousem, Division Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 2017 and length of stay requested (minimum 2 weeks)
4) One letter of support from a neuroradiology colleague
Please include a CV and a single reprint or PDF file of your work in the research/clinical area appropriate for us to use to evaluate your proposal.
Decisions will be made based on merit and a vote of the JHMI Neuroradiology faculty.
Deadline for receipt of application for 2017 is December 10, 2016. Decisions will be made by December 31, 2016.
Please pass this on to fellow European colleagues or members of your faculty in neuroradiology.
