Once again, undergraduate students at the Bahiana win scholarships for Emerging Leaders of Americas Program (ELAP), a Canadian program designed to offer scholarships of up to 6 months to Latin and Caribbean students. This year, the academics Victoria Faustino da Silva Reis, from the 8th semester of the Medicine course, and Agnes Silva Sampaio, from the 3rd semester of the Psychology course, won international aid. They will be able to study at ConcordiaUniversity of Edmonton thanks to an institutional partnership between Bahiana and this Canadian institution.
In recent years, the Institutional Academic Relationship and Internationalization Center (REAI) has been publicizing and encouraging student participation, three of which have already been included in previous editions.
“I hope that the program will bring me new experiences and that, in addition to learning there, I will be able to share a little of our culture with them”, says Agnes Silva Sampaio. In addition to participating in the academic program at ConcordiaUniversity of Edmonton, Vitória Reis, who is a member of the Interdisciplinary Autism Research Laboratory at the Bahiana (Labirinto), says he will take the Labyrinth Scale (an instrument for assessing ASD) for research purposes.
The event will bring together renowned experts to present the latest research and practices to healthcare professionals, students and parents.

The vacancies are for courses in Biomedicine, Physical Education, Nursing, Physiotherapy and Dentistry.
Meeting with professors marks the deepening of the interinstitutional partnership.
