AFL launches fellowship program
The new program, established by the AFL Medical Officers Association (AFLMOA), will award three fellowships to successful candidates each year who have a genuine long-term interest in football medicine.
The two-year program includes a part-time placement with an AFL or sub-elite club, mentoring by senior AFL doctors, access to educational and training opportunities and a modest stipend on top of whatever salaries are available.
GPs, registrars and sports physicians have been encouraged to apply.
