young-doctors-summit-27The Shingo Fujii Young Doctors Summit (YDS) is a one-day session held prior to the IGCS Biennial Meeting with the goal to bring together early career doctors from all over the globe for a day of education and networking. The summit was first offered in 2012 with a very generous donation from IGCS Past President, Prof. Shingo Fujii (Japan). IGCS is committed to continue Prof. Fujii’s vision to provide early career doctors with this unique opportunity to network and build relationships with peers from around the globe. Early career doctors from low and lower-middle income economies may apply for a travel grant to offset travel expenses.
