  • The deadline to apply for the 2019 Fellowship competition has passed. The 2020 competition will be launched in late 2019.

    The CANIBD IBD Nurse Fellowship provides an educational and mentoring opportunity to new or early career Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) nurses through a consistent, structured fellowship program in selected IBD Clinic locations across Canada.

    Fellows participate in a one-week on-site preceptorship with an experienced IBD nurse. A second week at the Fellow's employment site may also be facilitated to allow for additional mentoring with the Preceptor.

    Contingent on funding, Fellows and Preceptors receive up to $2,500 to participate in this program.
