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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Residents & Fellows selected for this placement will be expected to:
- Obtain country specific travel information and register with International SOS using the Johns Hopkins portal.
- Visit the Johns Hopkins Travel Medicine Clinic and obtain all appropriate vaccinations and health information before departure to the field. Residents will also be expected to adhere to all preventive regimens recommended by the travel clinic or personal physician.
- Submit the following reporting requirements: survey, personal reflection statement, and 5 high-resolution photos pertinent to their rotation no later than 1 month after returning to Hopkins, and agree to allow CGH the rights to publish said photographs along with appropriate photo credit attribution.
- Present on their experience at the next Global Health Day following the completion of their rotation assuming that they are still in the Hopkins residency program. Global Health Day is usually held at the end of March or early April each year.
Notices to Residents & Fellows:
- The process for the travel grants is competitive, so applicants are not guaranteed a grant.
- Applicants may NOT submit for travel already underway at the time of application or travel already completed.
- Applicants are also advised that, depending upon the placement, the award from the Center for Global Health may not cover the entire cost of their travel and subsistence. In these instances the awardee will be required to use their own resources to meet their costs.
