Paul S. Lietman Global Travel Grant for Residents & Fellows

Spring Deadline: Friday April 21, 2017

The Center for Global Health (CGH) has, for a number of years, supported trainees in their efforts to gain experience working in the developing world. This fellowship is named in honor of Dr. Paul Lietman, a longtime chief of the Division of Clinical Pharmacology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and specialist in bacterial and viral infections. To enable travel for some residents and fellows, the CGH, in conjunction with the Hopkins School of Medicine and the Graduate Medical Education (GME) program, is encouraging applications from trainees who have independently identified placement overseas. 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 by the Center for Global Health. 

Eligibility: 

The fellowship is open to residents and fellows in any GME program sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Residents and Fellows who will be completing their training prior to their travel are not eligible to apply. Applicants who are previous recipients of CGH travel grants cannot apply for new funding unless their previous award occurred while they were in another program, e.g. medical school. All applicants must apply for travel to low and middle-income countries. If you are unsure if your country qualifies, contact Nina Martin (nina.martin@jhu.edu).
