18th World Congress of Anaesthesiologists (WCA2024)

WCA2024 Scholarships

Support the Future of Anaesthesia

WCA2024 Scholarships

WFSA’s Scholarship Programme develops future leaders by helping young anaesthesiologists from low- and middle-income countries attend international congresses.

The World Congress of Anaesthesiologists (WCA) is the premier global anaesthesia meeting uniquely gathering specialists from all regions of the world and all resource settings. A WCA scholarship is invaluable to career progression and can have a transformative effect on healthcare in low-resource settings.

With your support, we aim to enable at least 50 Scholars to attend WCA2024 in Singapore in March 2024.

“The scholarship exposed me to some of the best professionals in anaesthesia and the least I can do is mentor another to follow in my footsteps or do even better”
