Each of these webinars will feature two or three Fellowship Fund recipients and will be chaired by a member of the Faculty Executive Committee.

In this webinar, the Faculty of Remote, Rural & Humanitarian Healthcare is proud to host the first recipients of the inaugural FRRHH Fellowship Fund 2021 to discuss the impact of their project and how it has helped to further their career.
