International Lab to Lab Exchange

The American Psychosomatic Society has begun an international Lab to Lab Exchange Initiative because of the desire to broaden research and training in psychosomatic medicine and the strong existing international connections in APS. We are particularly interested in helping trainees (graduate students, medical students, post-docs, etc.) going to and from the US and Europe as an initial starting point. APS will serve as an information clearinghouse for now, disseminating information at the annual meeting and on the website on existing funding programs for exchanges through federal granting agencies, research organizations and private foundations. Click here for website information.

We will also serve as a networking hub for the two parties in a lab exchange: 1) lab investigators, or mentors who would like to have more trainees in their labs in the future, or have prior experience teaching international trainees, and 2) lab trainees, who have made these exchanges work in the recent past. If you would be interested in being a part of such an information network, to provide information to interested individuals or at an APS panel in the future, please email info@psychosomatic.org.
