Host Centres are located in Europe and selected by the Fellowship Committee. Applicants should be able both to understand and speak fluently the language of the population of the selected Host Centre country. If an applicant has a specific host centre request then a support letter from the host mentor must accompany the application. The host centre cannot be changed after being awarded the fellowship.
The ESPE Clinical Fellowship Committee is a sub-committee of the ESPE Education and Training Committee which is appointed by the Council. The committee consists of a Chair, a Secretary and two members. The Committee is responsible for selecting the successful candidates from amongst the applicants, determining the length of the fellowship, selecting an appropriate host-centre and liaising with Fellows and Hosts during and immediately after the fellowship.
A representative of Merck is present at the Committee meetings and participates in the discussions including selection of the Fellows. However, they play no part in the final decision of the Committee regarding individual candidates and if voting is required, this is restricted to the ESPE Clinical Fellowship Committee members only.
