Paul S. Lietman Global Travel Grant for Residents & Fellows

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health (CGH), with the support of the Gilead Foundation and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and the Graduate Medical Education (GME) program, is able to support travel grants for residents and fellows to facilitate rotations overseas in low- and middle-income countries. Applications will be reviewed by a committee formed by the CGH.

Residents & Fellows selected for a grant that have also been approved by their residency director and the Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education will be awarded a grant of $3,500 - $5,000 to support travel- and other placement-related costs. You can read more about the impact of our program here.

ANNOUNCEMENT

The CGH will continue its application and awards processes for the Lietman award in Spring 2020, due at 11:59 p.m. on May 21. However absolutely no funding will be released until University policy changes regarding COVID19 and international travel. We will also be carefully reviewing awards based on the countries of travel – some awards will be released on a case by case basis depending on current travel restrictions.

Eligibility

The fellowship is open to residents and fellows in a GME program sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine or the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Residents and Fellows who will be completing their training prior to their travel are not eligible to apply. 

Applicants must have an MD or DO to apply, and be currently enrolled in a program that is predominantly clinically-focused, i.e. not solely research. All applicants must apply for travel to low and middle-income countries. If you are unsure if your country qualifies or have questions about your program's eligibility, contact the Student Program Coordinator (lietmanfellow@jhu.edu).

Other Requirements

Residents & Fellows selected for this placement will be expected to:

See Call for Applications for complete list of requirements.
