What will I get from the fellowship program?

The program adopts adult-learning theory as the guiding principle of the program, and thus, opportunities to pursue projects of individual trainees is at the heart of the program.  Fellows are intensively mentored by faculty, who share content and methodological interests with them and provide guidance on the policy-relevance of their research. The Boston University School of Public Health is the cornerstone of academic training.  Most fellows matriculate in Masters of Science degree programs in the departments of Epidemiology or Health Services and Systems Research.

Education & Training

What will I learn over the two years?

The program has a general curricular framework encompassing five basic competencies: Research Skills, Teaching Skills, Communication Skills, Professionalism, Leadership & Management Skills that overlay the various tracks.
