Program Summary

The Fogarty Global Health Fellowship Program replaced the Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars & Fellows (FICRS-F) Program, presenting new opportunities in global health research training. The Global Health Fellowship Program is a mentored research training program for pre- and postdoctoral candidates, sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Fellows train in a 12-month intensive, hands-on research program at one of our affiliated international training sites. VECD’s highly experienced global health mentors work together to mentor fellows at numerous U.S. and LMIC partner institutions, which include diverse, well-funded research sites in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

The VECD Global Health Consortium represents 115 faculty members from our four U.S. Universities and international collaborating institutions who serve as potential mentors for fellows. These faculty members represent expertise in infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, cancer, nutrition, diabetes/metabolic diseases, cardiology, mental health, women and MCH, pediatrics, substance abuse, ophthalmology, dental/oral health, surgery, trauma, burn, anesthesiology, health systems/implementation science, behavioral/social sciences, nursing, neurology/stroke, lung diseases, and genetics.


The VECD Global Health Fellowship Consortium is one of five major Consortia sponsored by the National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center.
