Masters/Doctoral Fellowship Program

The Master’s/Doctoral Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for students who are currently enrolled in either a master’s or doctoral program to acquire research knowledge and skills in areas pertaining to pediatric health disparities science. The core component of this program includes the application of advanced epidemiologic methods in the understanding of the etio-pathogenesis of pediatric health disparities. The utilization of such knowledge is required in mapping interventions with the intent to narrow diverse population differences in pediatric health care and health outcomes. Whereas social determinants are essential in understanding unequal outcomes of care, biologic determinants also play an important role. Further, the approach is translational, trans-disciplinary and team science, which renders evidence discovery more inclusive and reliable for quality and equity attainment. Fellows will also be required to mentor the HESSP students and will have the possibility to engage in other activities throughout the fellowship as well, such as conference attendance and other training opportunities.

Program runs May 10 — November 26 (six months) 

Stipend Amount: $13,700
