This month a new cohort of GloCal Health Fellows will embark on a year of research aimed at finding solutions to pressing global health issues.
After months of preparation and fine tuning their research projects, the 2018-2019 GloCal fellows are ready to explore topics such as antimicrobial resistance, digital health solutions, mental illness, interventions for populations affected by HIV and more.
The GloCal Health Fellowship supports a 12-month, mentored research fellowship for investigators interested in studying diseases and conditions in developing countries. The fellowship is designed for US doctoral students, professional students and postdoctoral fellows from any University of California campus, as well as foreign postdoctoral fellows from affiliated international sites in low- and middle-income countries.
“The program has an extensive network of international partners, all of which are committed to training the next generation of global health leaders”, according to Kimberly Bale, assistant director of the program, now in its seventh year. With partners abroad and the best and brightest faculty from across UC, GloCal fellows experience top notch mentorship and career development in global health.
