For Minority Undergraduate, Graduate and Health Professions Students
The Department of Epidemiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health is offering research training opportunities to minority undergraduate, graduate and health professions students who have an interest in the areas of nutrition, tropical infectious diseases, reproductive health and/or sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS or chronic disease.
As a recipient of one of these competitively awarded training positions, funded by the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institutes of Health, you will have the unique experience of helping others while you learn in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Guatemala, Jamaica, or Kenya.
Participating undergraduates and health professions students will spend 12 weeks (usually mid May- August) at their foreign training sites under the guidance of a UAB supervisor and a foreign mentor.
Graduate students usually spend three months overseas, but may be eligible for up to six months of training.
