UCLA CTSI TL1 Health Systems Science Summer Fellowship for Health Professional Students Deadline: March 12, 2021 05:00 PM
This summer fellowship is an introduction to mentored research training for health professional students focusing on health systems science. The program will provide each individual with exposure to the practice of implementation science in clinical settings, public health program design and evaluation, community-partnered research, and health policy design, with a focus on population health. This fellowship will help students uncover lessons for translational research, specifically, implications for meeting the unique needs of entire populations and addressing health disparities.
