Vanderbilt-Emory-Cornell-Duke (VECD) is one of six consortia that comprise the Fogarty Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars, which replaced the Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars & Fellows (FICRS-F) Program in 2012. The purpose of this program is to provide mentored global health research training opportunities in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) for pre- and post-doctoral candidates from the U.S. and LMICs. The program is sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Multiple training sites are available through the Vanderbilt-Emory-Cornell-Duke (VECD) Consortium.
The FICRS-F Support Center maintains a group on LinkedIn for program alumni with global health news, opportunities, and discussions. Join our group and see what your colleagues are up to in the field or join us on Facebook for the latest in Global Health news & opportunities!
