RESEARCH SCHOLAR TRAINING PROGRAM IN NEUROSCIENCES RESEARCH & MEDICAL EDUCATION (RSTP – NRME)

Icon Heading

This Research Scholar Training Program in Neurosciences Research & Medical Education (RSTP – NRME) at the International Maternal & Child Health Foundation (IMCHF) is designed for those doctoral degree recipients who are planning to pursue careers in neurosciences research & medical education. RSTP – NRME trainees pursue clinical research free from the demands of obtaining grants and teaching, although opportunities to do both are available. The aim of this program is to guide doctoral fellows to develop skills and experience in clinical research and scientific management to enable their own investigative career.  Research in the program is conducted under the direction of clinical, research and management mentors. The core aspect of the program is the mentoring relationship that will eventually enable an independent program of research. The training program offers seminar and webinar based courses to promote research and professional development. At the IMCHF, research scholars work in a highly collaborative research environment with leading scientists and clinicians.
