The Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), based in Antwerp, Belgium, is now accepting applications for the fifth edition of its Journalist-in-Residence programme.

The Journalist-in-Residence programme offers a unique opportunity for reporters, producers, and editors to work on an exciting project in the realm of tropical medicine and global health (a documentary, or a series of articles, for instance).

Since its inception, ITM has  leveraged and advanced medical science to solve tropical, poverty-related and global health threats through fundamental and applied research, advanced education and expert services.

Selected journalists  will interact with world experts in a wide range of topics in biomedical sciences, clinical sciences and public health. As ITM journalist-in-residence, he or she will have time to explore different areas or delve deeply into a single topic.

Applicants will also have the opportunity  to participate in a variety of scientific meetings, seminars and other learning experiences, as well as enjoy quiet time for reading and independent study.

This initiative is part of ITM’s capacity building programme in developing countries financed by the Belgian Directorate-General for Development (DGD).Read more about the work of the previous Journalists-in-Residence.
