If I’m selected, can I change my mind about participating before the program starts?
Places for the WiDH Leadership Program are limited to ensure an engaging environment for participants, as such, places are hotly contested. However, once you have been accepted into the program, cancellation will only be considered in exceptional circumstances due to the difficulty of filling places at short notice.
What happens if border restrictions/COVID19 impact my ability to participate?
WiDH is incorporating the necessary considerations when planning for possible COVID-19 implications to the delivery of the program. If COVID-19 poses significant risks to program delivery, the delivery mechanism may be changed in consideration to government advice and restrictions.
If I’m partway through the program and “life happens”, can I put my participation on hold?
We understand that there may be emergency situations or unforeseen circumstances during your time in the program. If this occurs you should discuss this with the WiDH team at the time and a we will work with you to find the best course of action.
What happens if I can’t attend one of the retreats?
By agreeing to participate in the WiDH Leadership program, you are committing to attending all three retreats. If you know that one of the retreat dates will not work for you at the time of application, then you should not apply for the program.
We understand that there may be emergency situations that arise at the time of the retreat and these will be discussed with the WiDH team at the time. However the expectation is that all participants who apply for the program and who are selected have the time available and are committed to all aspects of the program.
Will I become part of the alumni community upon completion of the program?
YES! The Alumni will help participants to maintain and build on their peer-to-peer relationships, creating a broad community of Women in Digital Health.
Is there a payment plan?
Payment plans will be made available for individuals at their request. Please discuss this option with AIDH prior to submitting your application.
