inception in 1974 has trained over 54 predoctoral and 143 postdoctoral trainees.
Opportunities available for pre and postdoctoral training
Postdoctoral applicants must be currently training with a program faculty member. MDs are usually affiliated with the Infectious Diseases, Adolescent Medicine, or Obstetrics & Gynecology fellowship programs; PhDs are working with Program faculty.
Prior to application, predoctoral and postdoctoral applicants must have established a formal research relationship with their training mentor and have developed a proposed plan for their research. The mentor must confirm that they will support the applicant's research for the period of their fellowship.
Eligible applicants must be a US Citizen or have permanent resident
status in the US.
Research training is provided in five component tracks:
• Research in HIV/STD Care & Affected Populations
• Epidemiology & Prevention Interventions for HIV/STD
• STD/HIV in Maternal, Child, & Adolescent Health
• Health Metrics & Modeling in HIV/STD
Stipends are paid at the NIH NRSA stipend
level for the fiscal year during in which the trainee starts his/her appointment, or is reappointed. Postdoctoral
stipends are commensurate with the number of years of postdoctoral experience.
