Fellowship Training Program
To help train and foster the next generation of global health scientists, the Fogarty International Center and its partners at the National Institutes of Health have funded four consortia of universities to administer 12-month clinical research training programs.
The INSIGHT program partnership includes the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB), and the University of Pittsburgh (UP).
The program aims to provide the next generation of aspiring global health researchers in the U.S. and in LMIC by giving scientists, early in their careers, a mentored research training experience in global health at established biomedical and behavioral research sites.
In 1998, these institutions were among the first implementers of the Fogarty AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) having provided research training that has strengthened the capacity of academic and research institutions and of research scientists globally.
Our program has four Disease Tracks, four Population Tracks, and three Science Tracks that underpin the global health research and priority needs of our partner LMIC institutions. The specific activities and steering committee of the tracks can be accessed by selecting a research track below.
