Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation Post-Bachelor Fellowship
Deadline: January 15, 2014
The Post-Bachelor Fellowship (PBF) is a structured health research program where individuals can apply their knowledge and passion to help advance the field of health metrics and accelerate global health progress. This fellowship provides a unique opportunity for recent college graduates with strong quantitative skills to train with faculty and senior researchers on a variety of public health projects.
The PBF program combines academic research, education, and professional work with progressive on-the-job training and mentoring from a renowned group of professors and researchers. Through research, training workshops, coursework, and field experience in developing countries, the program aims to produce the next generation of scholars and leaders in global health measurement and evaluation.
The purpose of the fellowship is to:
Cultivate capacity of young professionals to perform high-level independent research that is rigorous, creative, and innovative.
Advance aptitude in developing and applying sophisticated analytical methods for health research.
Develop understanding of the current global health landscape and its challenges.
Provide a mentoring and ongoing learning environment.
Prepare fellows for future positions in a wide variety of careers in organizations that include academic institutions, national health agencies, international organizations, foundations, nonprofit organizations, and private businesses.
IHME fellows work to support the Institute’s core research to answer these three critical questions: What are the major health problems? How well is society addressing these problems? How do we best dedicate resources to get the maximum impact in improving population health in the future? To achieve that end, fellows will work in one or two of the following research areas.
The PBF program requires a minimum two-year commitment, commencing with training and orientation in early September. Fellows are eligible to apply for a fully-funded Master of Public Health in Health Metrics and Evaluation during the first year of the fellowship.
Fellows receive the following salary:
First-year fellow: $40,008
Second-year fellow: $44,004
Third-year fellow: $45,324

Analytical Thinking Exercise:
Applicants to the PBF program will participate in an analytical thinking exercise. The analytical-thinking exercise consists of short answer, multiple choice, and true/false case-based questions that aim to assess your analytical and problem-solving skills. The questions will also give you a better idea of the types of skills and aptitudes that IHME’s Post-Bachelor Fellows need to possess.
About the Analytical Thinking Exercise:
No health or quantitative background is required or expected.
It is not necessary to study or prepare for the exercise.
It is a timed event.
Candidates may take the exercise one time only.
An email with a link to the analytical-thinking exercise and instructions will be sent to each candidate shortly after the deadline date.
All submitted application materials will be reviewed by a team of faculty, senior researchers, and members of the Education and Training Office at IHME. Notifications are made in February to those selected to interview for the program. These candidates interview at IHME in March. Fellowships are awarded by April 11, 2014.
Applications will only be considered once all materials have been received.

International Society for Infectious Diseases Scientific Exchange Fellowships
The ISID Scientific Exchange Fellowship Program was established in 1992 to promote collaboration among researchers in different countries by enabling infectious disease researchers in the formative stage of their career to extend their research experience in institutions outside of their region. These awards are not restricted to physicians and are intended to support young scientists from developing countries in updating their knowledge of new, relevant laboratory techniques or in learning specific skills and techniques.
Proposals that enhance the transfer of technologies to geographical areas where they are particularly needed will be favored.
Applicants are to be investigators from under-resourced countries, younger than 40 years, already working in a research area, but who have not had the opportunity to work or to study outside their countries or region.
Proposals will be reviewed by members of the Professional Development Working Group and decisions made in collaboration with the President and the Program Director. Funding will be provided for up to 3 months and up to US $7,500.
Upon completion of the project, a written report of the project must be sent to the Society. The Society encourages recipients of grants to present their results at scientific meetings and to submit them for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Humanitarian Resident Travel Grant
The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) wishes its members to engage in humanitarian efforts. Humanitarians are those who charitably lay down their life for others in need; that is, their professional skills, time, physical efforts, spiritual commitment, and financial resources.
The Humanitarian Efforts Committee helps the AAO-HNS Foundation as an organization, and its members as individuals, to serve humanity's needs in this medical specialty throughout the world. Our goal is achieved through domestic and international patient care, preventive medicine, and education. As an extension of this desire, travel grants are given to provide an opportunity for residents in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery benevolently to give a period of professional service to the people of a developing country.
Duration of Service
A minimum of one week at one site.
The recipient of this grant is responsible for contact and agreement with officials of the institution and the country in which he or she desires to serve. The AAO-HNS Foundation's Humanitarian Efforts Committee will assist in providing several possibilities of institutions desiring such service. This grant is specifically for service in seriously underserved areas, both within and outside the United States.
Grants of $1,000 are available, and the Foundation may award up to 15 grants per year. Grant applications must be for future trips. The recipient must raise additional funds for travel, living expenses, and so on. The service must be completed no later than one calendar year after the grant is awarded. Grant recipients who cannot make their planned trip within the one year period will be required to return the grant monies, but will be eligible to re-apply for future grants.
Source of Funds
The AAO-HNS Foundation Humanitarian Efforts Travel Grant Fund. This fund is supported through individual donations to the President's Appeal and Millennium Society.
Eligibility and Deadlines
An application may be received from resident members of the Academy who will have completed at least two years of otolaryngology residency training (excluding surgical internship) in an accredited program at the time of service. Academy members in training fellowships are also eligible. Priority is given to residents in PGY4 or 5 or fellows in training, because of their advance surgical training. Prior recipients of a Humanitarian Efforts Resident Travel Grant are ineligible.
