Support is provided for one year (stipend, travel, supplies) to conduct mentored clinical research at one of the Center for Global Health international sites (Haiti; Tanzania; Brazil). There will be 1-3 slots per year at Weill-Cornell and the application process is competitive. The start date of the one-year training will be in July. Interested WCMC students should contact  Dr. Dan Fitzgerald  and  Lindsey Reif . (Note: The Fogarty Global Health Fellowship Program has replaced the Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars and Fellows Program.)
  • Doris Duke Charitable Foundation: Clinical Research Fellowship for Medical Students The Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship (CRF) provides support for one year of full-time clinical research training. The main goal of the program is to encourage medical students to pursue careers in clinical research. Interested medical students must be willing to take a year out from school and conduct fellowship research and training at one of 12 hosting medical schools. Six of the 12 participating schools offer international fellowship opportunities.
  • BOTUSA Project - Research Fellowship for Senior Medical Students (6+ Month Elective) The BOTUSA Project is a collaborative effort between the Botswana Ministry of Health, the  U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention\Division of Tuberculosis Elimination   (CDC\DTBE), and the Global AIDS Program (GAP). The principal goal of the BOTUSA Project is to expand our knowledge of the relationship between epidemic tuberculosis (TB) and epidemic HIV disease in a resource-poor country setting so that this information can be used to develop prevention strategies for the local and global control of TB. BOTUSA staff work closely with counterparts in the Botswana National TB Programme and AIDS Control Programme. BOTUSA has a medical student fellowship to provide third or fourth-year medical students the opportunity to participate in CDC research in Botswana, as well as gain experience with clinical medicine and culture in a developing country.
  • Each year, eight competitively selected medical students from around the country spend 10-12 months at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. At CDC they gain an in-depth understanding of applied epidemiology, the role of epidemiology in medicine and health, and the role of physicians in the public health system. With the guidance of experienced CDC epidemiologists, they perform epidemiologic analyses and research, design public health interventions and assist in field investigations. Possible areas of concentration include birth defects, injury prevention, chronic disease, infectious disease, environmental health, reproductive health and minority health.
  • CDC Foundation - O.C. Hubert Fellowship in International Health The year-long fellowship provides third- and fourth-year medical and veterinary students with valuable public health experience in an international setting. The main focus of the fellowship is a 6- to 12-week field assignment. Fellows are mentored by experienced CDC staff and learn through hands-on experience while working on a public health project in a developing country. Projects vary each year, and applicants may indicate a preference for up to five field assignments. The CDC-Hubert Global Health Fellowship is endowed by the O.C. Hubert Charitable Trust.
  • Global Health Corps GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity in year-long paid positions. During their fellowship year, fellows make a significant and measurable contribution to the partner organization and the target population. GHC partners with organizations that range from small grassroots organizations to large global institutions. Fellow candidates apply for specific positions with one of the partner organizations for which they have relevant skills and experience, and are selected jointly by GHC and the partner organization. In the 2013-2014 fellow class, GHC had 52 American fellows serving in Burundi, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia and the US.
  • biomedical research training for medical, dental, and veterinary students enrolled in schools in the U.S. The fellowship research may be conducted at any academic or nonprofit institution in the United States, except the National Institutes of Health. Research may be conducted abroad if the fellow's mentor is affiliated with a U.S. institution.
  • Year-Off Training Program for Graduate or Medical Students in Clinical and Translational Science The Year-off  Training  Program for Graduate and Medical Students provides opportunities for students who are enrolled in graduate or medical degree programs to engage in biomedical research at the Rockefeller Center for Clinical and Translational Science. Those selected for the program come to the Center with the understanding that they will return to their degree-granting institution and program within one year. In an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research, trainees work under the supervision of some of the leading clinical and translational scientists in the world. The trainee can select from among the 75 different laboratories on the Rockefeller campus. In addition, trainees participate in the didactic programs and lectures developed for Clinical Scholars.

Volunteer/Partially Funded:

  • American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) Overseas Assistance Grant AMWA provides small grants, up to $1,500,  for assistance with transportation costs (airfare, train fare, etc.) connected with pursuing medical studies in an off-campus setting where the medically neglected will benefit. The Grants are awarded to national AMWA members completing their second, third or fourth year of an accredited U.S. medical or osteopathic medical school or a resident who will be spending a minimum of six weeks and no longer than one year in a sponsored program which will serve the needs of the medically underserved.
  • International Society of Travel Medicine  The ISTM Research  Award program provides moderate grants (between USD 5,000 and USD 10,000) each year through a peer-review process implemented by the ISTM Research and Grants Committee. These grants are designed to stimulate travel medicine research by supporting comprehensive research projects or, for larger projects, providing support for pilot studies to enable researchers to collect data/test hypotheses so that they can then apply to other agencies for more substantive research grants.
  • Remote Area Medical The Remote Area Medical (RAM) Volunteer Corps is a non-profit, volunteer, airborne relief corps dedicated to serving mankind by providing free health care, dental care, eye care, veterinary services, and technical and educational assistance to people in remote areas of the United States and the world. Volunteer doctors, nurses, pilots, veterinarians and support workers participate in expeditions (at their own expense) in some of the world's most exciting places. Medical supplies, medicines, facilities and vehicles are donated. To volunteer as a student, you must have school sponsorship and supervision in the form of a licensed practitioner. RAM aims at development rather than dependence so volunteers are typically involved in education and organization as much as direct health care service.
  • Volunteer Missionary Movement The Volunteer Missionary Movement (VMM)  was founded in 1969 by Edwina Gateley, an English laywoman, in response to a need for lay people to become more deeply involved in the mission life of the Church. After spending three years in Uganda, where she opened a very successful school for young girls and worked as a teacher, she returned to England and began to recruit and train volunteer missionaries to work in education, healthcare and pastoral projects in eastern Africa. As VMM became more widely known, it was able to send volunteers to communities in need throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Transportation, housing, and food can be covered by the organization.
  • Unite for Sight Global Impact Corps Unite For Sight supports eye clinics in  Ghana, India and Honduras by investing human and financial resources in their social ventures to eliminate patient barriers to eye care. Unite For Sight applies best practices in eye care, public health, volunteerism, and social entrepreneurship to achieve our goal of high-quality eye care for all. Global Impact Fellows are volunteers that range from undergraduate students to medical students, public health students and professionals, nurses, educators, opticians, optometrists and ophthalmologists. They receive all necessary training from Unite For Sight so that they are able to assist the local doctors with global health delivery. Global Impact Fellows participating with Unite For Sight abroad have the option to also design and pursue a global health research study.

Vongai Christine Mlambo, a 4th year medical student, will research “Cost Effectiveness of Cardiac Surgery for Rheumatic Heart Disease” in Rwanda.

“The reason I wanted to become a physician is to expand healthcare infrastructure for non-communicable diseases in Southern Africa,” she says. “I cannot wait to research how this can be done successfully for the treatment of rheumatic heart disease, with local communities in Rwanda driving the agenda. To learn from and work alongside cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons on the ground will be an honor and the takeaways, invaluable.”

  • Ideally, students already have a pre-existing relationship with a professor who is conducting global health research. If you already have a faculty mentor, discuss this opportunity with them.
  • If you are not already connected to a faculty member who is engaged in global health work, you can start your search by visiting the Stanford Global Health Research & Activity Map . Search by region or clinical/academic focus area. Once you find a potential mentor, you can email them directly or contact Yosefa at CIGH to request an introduction.
  • If you are reaching out to a faculty you do not already have a relationship with, include your CV and your interests and how they align with theirs and include a link to this webpage with information about the Global Health Medical Student Research Fellowship.
  • Research activities depend on your interests and the time constraint of three quarters.

Sites where Fellows propose to conduct research must be pre-approved by the Director of Research for CIGH, Dr. Steve Luby, and the Senior Associate Dean for Global Health, Dr. Michele Barry during the application process. All research protocols will need to obtain IRB approval by Stanford.

The fellowship spans one year (4 quarters) as follows:

  • Summer Quarter: Fellows are in clerkships during this term. Fellows must submit MedScholars application by the July deadline. The Fellowship is contingent upon the MedScholars application being accepted.
  • Autumn Quarter: Fellowship begins. Fellows will spend this quarter on campus preparing for their global field research. Fellows will enroll in classes related to epidemiology and global health research and they will set up the research project and engage with the faculty mentor and Dr. Luby and Dr. Barry.
  • Winter, Spring, and Summer Quarters: Fellows must spend up to three full-time quarters implementing their global health project, with a majority of their time spent pursuing research abroad.

Completion Requirements

Submit a report:

  • Use manuscript format (hypothesis, methods, results, citations) with an emphasis on results
  • If the research has not been fully completed and a full manuscript is not possible, then a progress report is acceptable as long as the advisor confirms that substantial work has been completed
  • If the work is being published, a paper can be submitted in place of the report as long as the student made significant contributions to the paper

Give an oral presentation of the results of the project: Submit an abstract to present research findings at the Stanford Global Health Research Convening or the Stanford Medical Student Research Symposium , or at a regional, national, or an international academic conference

Submit an evaluation of the experience

The report and oral presentation information must be provided to the MedScholars program within 6 months after the end of the fellowship, along with a mentor letter of summary.

If approved for the year-long fellowship, students will receive a stipend in the autumn and MedScholars support winter, spring, and summer quarter of the fellowship year.

Medical student earns national research fellowship

  • Written by John Keenan, UNMC strategic communications
  • Published Jul 9, 2024

medical research fellowship usa

Bryant England, MD, PhD, and Emily Anthone

Second-year medical student Emily Anthone recently was awarded a 2024 Alpha Omega Alpha Carolyn L. Kuckein Student Research Fellowship. 

The $5,000 fellowship will support Anthone’s research, titled “Investigating Disease Heterogeneity, Severity, and Progression in Rheumatoid Arthritis-Associated Interstitial Lung Disease Related to Cigarette Smoking.”

Only one student per institution can apply for the fellowship, and only 58 students nationwide received the fellowship this year.

Anthone, who started at the UNMC College of Medicine in 2023, came into the program unsure of where her medical passion would lay, but with research experience from her undergraduate days.

“In college, I worked as a student research assistant in the Health, Emotion, and Addiction Laboratory and Epidemiology of Substance Use research group at the University of Southern California,” Anthone said. “This research looked at cannabis, alcohol, tobacco and other substance use trends in youth populations in order to examine patterns and consequences of substance use. This passion of mine blended well into my curiosity regarding the effects of substance use – like cigarette smoking – in disease progression of RA.” 

At UNMC, she joined the college’s Enhance Medical Education Track program to explore possible study areas, eventually discovering an interest in autoimmune diseases.

“I have some family members and friends who have been affected by autoimmune diseases, so that was something I could see myself being passionate about,” she said.

Bryant England, MD, PhD, associate professor in the UNMC Division of Rheumatology, became Anthone’s research mentor in the program.

“Since I had kind of already been introduced to addiction science and cigarette smoking, we started talking about how cigarettes can affect disease progression in rheumatoid arthritis, manifesting in these extra-articular processes in RA, such as interstitial lung disease, which is what I decided to do my research topic this summer on.”

Anthone has always enjoyed research and sees it as being a part of her medical school and medical career.

“When I’m a physician, I hope to go into a field where I can continue to explore research.”

The fellowship calls for eight 40-hours weeks of research over the summer. Anthone said she is most excited about completing research under her own name.

“In undergrad, I didn’t get my name on any publications,” she said, adding that a lot of what she did was data input and helping with poster design.

“But now, I’m the one that’s going to be seeing those outcomes and using those statistical programs to figure out the answers to my questions, so I’m excited to do that.

“I’m also nervous to do that,” she said with a laugh, “because I’ve never run those statistical programs before or put this much time into something like this. So, I’m excited and nervous both.”

Dr. England said Anthone went above and beyond to be awarded the fellowship.

“As a medical student, you’re busy studying the textbooks and preparing for tests,” Dr. England said. “Emily not only sought a research project but put in the time and effort to carefully review the literature, come up with a new project and put together a high-quality proposal that was recognized at a national level.

“This provides an immersive summer research experience, as well as the opportunity to attend a national meeting, which is impressive at this stage of her academic career.”

Dr. England said the support of the UNMC College of Medicine and Dean Bradley Britigan, as well as the UNMC AΩA chapter, were integral to Anthone receiving the award.

“That speaks to this environment in the college of medicine and division of rheumatology,” he said. “We want to support our best and brightest. If they’re willing to put in that effort, to do hard things and to do them well, then we are going to get behind them.”

AΩA Chapter President Jason Shiffermiller, MD, praised Anthone on her work.

“I was very impressed with Emily’s research proposal, and I’m excited to see the work she’ll produce with the assistance of the AΩA’s Kuckein award,” he said.

Anthone will submit her research to present at the 2025 American College of Rheumatology Convergence Annual Meeting. Her travel to present at the national meeting will be supported by the AΩA award.

Cancer Epidemiology / Health Services Research Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program 2024

Doctoral Students

The Henry Ford Cancer (HFC) Cancer Epidemiology Prevention and Control research program invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow to begin a 1-2-year fellowships to start in 2024. The successful candidate will join a team of over 100 cancer researchers conducting studies across the cancer continuum and become part of the Henry Ford Health + Michigan State University (HFH + MSU) dynamic research community.

Henry Ford Hospital is in midtown Detroit and is one of the top cancer hospitals in the United States with over 15,000 cancer-related visits a year. Detroit is experiencing a renaissance of culture and habitat. A new light rail transit line, factories converted to attractive loft housing, and diners and cafes abound. Apartment housing in nearby, and recently developed, midtown Detroit is available with assistance in relocation also offered.

Postdoctoral Fellows work on 1-year assignments with an optional 2nd year under the leadership of HFC researchers in the Henry Ford Department of Public Health Sciences (PHS). PHS has a rich history in biostatistical innovation and epidemiologic breakthroughs. Starting in the late 1980's researchers in PHS investigated the distribution and determinants of environmentally caused cancers partnering with the Detroit-based auto industry. Becoming a full-fledged department in the early 1990s, PHS expanded its areas of research, collaborations, capabilities, and staff.

Today, PHS is one of the top NIH-funded health system-based departments of public health, with research spanning from personalized molecular genetics to a population and community-based approach. PHS has developed the infrastructure to support a full spectrum of research, from laboratory to clinical and population science, and is home to dozens of independently funded researchers who work side-by-side with clinical and basic science colleagues to learn, collaborate, and share expertise.

We seek talented and motivated candidates who wish to play a leading role on projects focused on cancer research, including the research areas of lung cancer screening, hepatitis and cancer, prostate and/or breast cancer epidemiology, and cancer bioinformatics. The fellowship offers opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaborations and professional development including preparation of scientific manuscripts, presentation at scientific conferences and grant proposal writing. Training is also offered in research and biostatistical methods utilizing electronic health records data. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for independent funding the 2nd year of their fellowship. Stipend support is at the current NIH level.


We seek talented candidates with a doctoral degree (such as PhD, DrPH, ScD, MD) in epidemiology, health services research, medicine, informatics, biostatistics, or related field. Preference will be given to applicants with strong analytic, writing, and oral communication skills and a demonstrated ability to publish manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals. Applicants must be eligible for U.S. employment. Individuals from all backgrounds, especially those from historically underrepresented groups, are encouraged to apply. The goal of a successful applicant should be to become an independent scientist.

Application Procedures:

Potential candidates are required to identify a Research Scientist from HFC’s highly experienced investigators in their research area of interest who is committed to being a primary mentor and providing co-funding. Please send a cover letter, CV, research statement, example of scientific writing and contact information for two professional references to the email address below. The application due date is Friday, December 15, 2023 . Awardees will be notified in January 2024 with funding to start in 2024.
