Lietman fellowships receive continued support from Gilead Foundation

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health (CGH) has received a second-year award from the Gilead Foundation to grow its Paul S. Lietman Global Health Travel Fellowship program for Hopkins residents and fellows. This fellowship is named in honor of Dr. Paul LIetman, a specialist in bacterial and viral infections and longtime chief of the Division of Clinical Pharmacology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. 

New Partnership

The program will continue to award grants between $3,500-$5,000 to support trainees in their efforts to gain research and clinical experience working in low and middle income countries. New to this year's Lietman fellowship is a partnership with the Global Health Pathway Program (GHPP). The GHPP aims to create opportunities for exposure to global health careers by offering rotations in low and middle-income countries where Hopkins has a mature collaborative footprint. The Center for Global Health will reserve a select number of fellowship awards for trainees who elect to join the global health pathway during their medical training. 

Continued Success

In 2014-2015 the CGH saw a remarkable in increase in the number of applicants to the fellowship program; we were able to offer awards to approximately double the number of trainees than in any previous year. With the continued support from the Gilead foundation the CGH believes it can maintain this momentum and continue to engage medical trainees in global health work. 

Applications have already been submitted for the Fall, 2015 cycle and are currently under review.
