ISSM Scholarships 2017 - ESSM School of Sexual Medicine

April 20, 2017

The ISSM hereby has the pleasure to announce ISSM scholarships to attend the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine.


Scholarships are available to first-time attendees only. Eligibility requirements are:
  • A completed scholarship online application form should be submitted including a resume and a short explanation of the need for the scholarship.
  • A written proof of professional degree is required (a letter from your organization signed by the chairman of the department where you are employed stating your professional degree).
  • Applications will only be accepted from ISSM members in good standing. If you are not a member, you can apply here.
  • Applications from those working in lower income countries (World Health Organization Development Index ≤0.8), those who are experiencing financial hardship, and/or those with limited resources will be given priority.


The ESSM School of Sexual Medicine was a joint venture established by the European Society for Sexual Medicine and the European Federation of Sexology. The first “Oxford Course” was run in 2007. As in previous years, this year, the ESSM will deliver a learning curriculum based upon the UEMS Joint Committee for Sexual Medicine syllabus and the EFS/ESSM Syllabus of Clinical Sexology. The program is intended for clinicians seeking to acquire the knowledge and skills essential for practice in Sexual Medicine and Clinical Sexology. Medically-qualified participants should find the program helpful when preparing for the Fellowship of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine examination (more info


The running cost of the complete Programme is more than EUR 3,500 per person, but it is partly subsidised by generous support from the European Society for Sexual Medicine. Hence, the registration fee for the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine 2017 is now EUR 2,300.

  • ISSM is offering 10 scholarships covering the full amount of the registration fee. The registration fee is inclusive of tuition fees, meals and accommodation. ISSM scholars will need to pay for their own travel and any additional expenses.

  • Scholarships are available to first-time attendees.
  • The deadline to apply for an ISSM scholarship is June 1st, 2017. Applications submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
