JHU-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program

Dates

Start Date: 09/01/2004
End Date: 05/31/2012

The Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program trains African professionals in bioethics and research ethics through course work, seminars, and funded independent scholarship in research ethics. Through funding from the Fogarty International Center, National Institutes of Health, three trainees are selected each year for this one-year training program. African scholars, with backgrounds in research, IRB work, and/or government – spend the first six months of their training at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Bioethics Institute, engaging in courses and seminars in bioethics, research ethics, and quantitative and qualitative research methods. While at Johns Hopkins, trainees also attend seminars at the NIH Department of Clinical Bioethics and attend IRB meetings at Johns Hopkins. Trainees also receive close mentoring to prepare them to conduct an independent practicum project related to research ethics when they return to Africa for the last six months of the training program. During the practicum period, trainees receive funding to conduct their independent project. Projects may focus on conducting primary data on what participants in research studies understand, how to improve informed consent, training IRBs in research ethics, or writing a scholarly paper on research ethics from an African perspective. The Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program is directed by Dr. Nancy Kass, with Dr. Adnan Hyder serving as co-director. More information
