Global Chronic Disease Research Training for Fellows
Repository Usage Stats
The growing interest in global chronic disease research is not matched by workforce capacity at present.1 The dearth of researchers with global chronic disease backgrounds and training has led to the creation of novel funding opportunities for young researchers, particularly fellows. As 2 cardiology fellows in global cardiovascular disease research training through the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Clinical Research Fellows’ (FICR-F) program, we have a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities in this area. Here, we present our perspective on potential funding pathways, areas of interest germane to global cardiovascular disease research, the importance of an overseas training component, forms of “home” institutional support that can be helpful, and personal challenges and opportunities that merit consideration.
