Applications Open: Virtual Scholarships to WCA2024 

WFSA is offering virtual scholarships for the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists (WCA) 2024, made possible through generous donations from partner organisations and individuals

Representing over 130 countries, the WCA is the only international congress addressing anaesthesiology globally. 

The 18th WCA, taking place in Singapore from 3 to 7 March 2024, will provide scholars with the opportunity to learn about the latest techniques and equipment used in the field of anaesthesia. 

The WCA encourages French, Mandarin and Spanish-speaking anaesthesiologists worldwide to attend virtually. However, to ensure maximum engagement, participants are advised to have a basic understanding of English, as the core of the congress will be conducted in English. 

Successful applicants will receive admission to the full virtual congress
