This call is an invitation for expressions of interest to become a Senior Associate of the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC)
Our network of associates
The Foundation has long relied on support from a small and hugely dedicated group of international experts in integrated care. Our Senior Associates support our education and research work as members of the Integrated Care Academy faculty and as subject matter experts for our Integrated Care Solutions projects. They also support our conferences by chairing sessions and workshops during conferences. Our Senior Associates are also our trusted critical friends as we deliver our vision.
Our associates tend to work either full or part time in substantive roles and participating as an associate with IFIC complements these roles.
Widening our network
As our work has grown and the scope of integrated care extended, we know that we need to increase the number of Senior Associates who are recognised experts in the field of integrated care that we can call on. We are particularly interested in experts with experience in:
- Integrated care for children and young people
- Integrated cancer care
- Integrated care for vulnerable and under-served populations
- Health economic and quantitative evaluation of the impact of integrated care
- Digitally enabled integrated care
- Measuring what matters in integrated care.
If you think you have expertise to offer the Foundation and are as committed as we are to the goals of the Foundation (read our current strategy here), we would love to hear from you.
Senior Associate roles are not remunerated. However, where we involve Senior Associates in work that the Foundation is paid for, a separate agreement for remuneration is put in place.
Please send a short CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 November 2021.
We will be holding briefing sessions for anyone interested in finding out more about the role of Senior Associate on
