Due to an unexpected change in plans, the Child Health Equity Research Program for Post-doctoral Trainees (CHERPP-T) at the University of Washington School of Medicine (UW) has reopened its call for applications for the 2021-2023 class and has set a new deadline for receipt of application materials to March 5, 2021.
CHERPP-T is a 2-year (optional 3rd year) research fellowship program in child health equity research, funded by NICHD, that provides trainees with didactic training in rigorous health services and clinical research methodologies, and in community-partnered approaches to research, experiential research training, career development, and a long-term network of mentors, collaborators, and partners for child health equity research. Graduate-level coursework can be taken at the UW School of Public Health and can lead to a master’s level Public Health degree, if desired. The fellowship is housed within the UW Department of Pediatrics, Division of General Pediatrics. The program directors are Tumaini Coker, MD, MBA, and Jason A. Mendoza, MD, MPH, faculty-scientists with expertise and NIH-grant funding focused on child health equity. This fellowship is unique in that one of its primary goals is to increase the number of underrepresented racial/ethnic minority (URM) researchers who are independently funded scientists in child health equity research. Our recruitment is focused on URM trainees; however, all applicants will be considered.
For the class of 2021-2023, fellows will start in July 2021. Our fellowship website has complete details: https://sites.uw.edu/cherppt. Applicants should send a CV, Personal Statement, and three Letters of Recommendation to CHERPPT@uw.edu by the new extended application deadline of March 5, 2021, or contact us for more information.
