These 11-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 in East Africa. 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.
