Project Description

This program builds upon the highly successful UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship, now in its tenth year. Its cornerstone is a 12-month, mentored research training opportunity at one of 30 institutions across Africa, Asia, and the Americas. We further strengthen the program with an innovative curriculum on research leadership, new approaches to enhance diversity in global health, and research platforms aligned with regional and international scientific priorities.
