Fogarty Global Health Fellows
These 12-month fellowships focused on critical, inter-related areas of health in low-income countries and provide outstanding opportunities for highly motivated individuals to experience research training at top-ranked, NIH-funded research centers.
Each year the fellowships begin with an intensive orientation program in July, followed by mentored clinical research training at international partner institutions. Post-doctorate trainees and doctoral students in the health professions are eligible to apply.
Below are current and former mentors for U of M Fellows. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of mentoring a fellow through your research project, contact Molly McCoy. Applications are not restricted to the mentors named below.
