The Fellows Program

Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellows Program

Program Established: Fiscal Year 2007

In 2007 the FICRSF Support Center developed a post-doctoral program for medical residents and fellows, as well as scientists with PhDs engaged in health-related post-doctoral programs. The Fellows Program was based on the same main components as the Scholars Program: mentored clinical research and orientation toward global health.

The Fellows were further along in their careers than the Scholars, and thus posed a greater challenge in the application process. Fellows and Scholars alike were evaluated on their own potential; however, Fellows were also evaluated on their proposed sites, research projects, and qualifications of their proposed mentors.
