Call for Applications: Career Advancement for Research in Health Equity T37 Training Program

May 28, 2019

We are pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new T37 training program. The Weill Cornell Medicine CARE program provides research training, mentoring, and exposure to health equity research and global healthfor pre-doc and post-doctoral trainees.The long-term goal of this program is to increase the diversity and number of highly trained scientists working across disciplines to improve health equity and global health.

About the Program: 

The CARE T37 program aims to identify talented URM pre- and post-doctoral trainees across the health sciences who are considering careers in health equity research and global health. Trainees will participate in our intensive summer research training session that leverages both formal degree and non-degree institutional programs and builds methodological skills in scientific research. Additionally, trainees will engage in research with seasoned mentors embedded in their academic institutionsand select global health research sites. The program provides monthly stipends to help defray living expenses in NYC during the summer didactic session.  Limited funds are available to support no more than 1-2 trainees for no more than 6-weeks of mentored research experience at our NIH-funded select global health sites.


Medical student, Residents, and Post-doctoral students/Medical fellows who are from underrepresented populations (individuals from African American, Hispanic, Native/American, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Island populations and individuals with disabilities) should consider applying to the program. Although the program will consider trainees at any stage of the academic healthcare training continuum (from medical student, to resident, to fellowship/post-doc), URM post-doctoral students/medical fellows with strong interest to pursue a career in scientific research and health equity and/or global health research are strongly encouraged to apply.

How to Apply:

Candidates interested in applying to the CARE T37 Program must submit an application package. The application package must include the following components:

  • One page statement that includes the name of your mentor, a description of your research interests and career plans, and a brief summary of a potential health equity/global health project you would like to develop further.
