WONCA Europe

Exchange Awards

The Vasco da Gama Movement awards the Hippokrates Exchange Prize to the best Hippokrates exchange to an European rural or urban practice and the Carosino Prize to the best Hippokrates exchange to an European rural practice*. The Exchanges must have been completed in the two calendar years before the Award ceremony.

 

The Carosino Prize was established in memory of Dr Claudio Carosino, an Italian Rural General Practitioner/Family Physician, tutor and mentor, who sadly died in 2010 at the hands of a patient. Read more about Dr Carosino on Wikipedia.

 

*If you have undertaken/plan to undertake an exchange to a rural setting please contact Dr Veronika Rasic, VdGM/EURIPA liaison, on beyondeurope@vdgm.eu, for confirmation of whether it can be recognised as a rural practice.

 

Applications for the next edition of the Hippokrates and Carosino Prizes are now closed. Please find attached more information and instructions on the application process!
