UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship

Application open August 2020

Exceptional global health training

Since 2012, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Tulane University have offered exceptional global public health training through the UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship program, funded by the Fogarty International Center within the National Institutes of Health.

This consortium brings together four top-ranked universities and their respective international research training sites in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Trainee research projects are supported by mentors with expertise in clinical, public health, laboratory, and implementation research. Each trainee works with a team of mentors, including at least one U.S. and one international member to monitor the trainee’s progress and provide on-site supervision.

Our program supports applicants at different levels of training, including postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students committed to careers in global health research. We accept applications from interested candidates within and outside of our current consortium.

Areas of research focus include but are not limited to HIV/AIDS, neurological disorders, mental health, stroke and cardiovascular diseases, women’s health, health-related environmental factors, and cancer prevention and treatment in resource-constrained settings.
