The Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars Support Center at the Vanderbilt University Institute for Global Health (VIGH) is pleased to announce a new one-year clinical research training program for persons in post-residency clinical fellowships, in other health-related post-doctoral programs, and/or within three years of their last major degree training (e.g., registrar, residency, fellowship, doctoral program).
Persons in residency programs are also eligible with the permission of their residency director.
The program is designed for persons from low, lower middle, and upper middle income countries as listed by the World Bank or for citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.

Applicants for the fellowship must develop a collaborative research proposal with an eligible institution overseas.
This fellowship is an opportunity to immerse medical and health scientists in training related to global health and international collaboration.
Persons in health-related disciplines (human or animal) such as medicine, nursing, public health, dentistry, optometry, and others who are currently engaged in post-doctorate programs and qualified to do clinical research are welcome to apply.
Purpose of the Fellowship:
The purpose of this program is to support a one-year, mentored research fellowship for clinical investigators studying diseases and conditions in developing countries and to build international health research capacity.
