• International Mental Health Research Fellows

    (Fogarty Institute-sponsored program)
    The Fogarty International Center-sponsored Training Program in International Mental Health brings physicians and social scientists from China and Indonesia to the Department for advanced training each year. The trainees come to Harvard for periods ranging from one to nine months. In addition to their time at Harvard, some trainees spend an additional month at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, working with our collaborators there. The Training Program in International Mental Health is directed by Professor Byron Good.

    A grant from the National Institute of Mental Health supports a program of research training in ‘clinically relevant medical anthropology’ in the field of culture and mental health services at the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine. Post-doctoral fellows (physicians or social scientists - most often psychiatrists and anthropologists, but also psychologists or sociologists) are supported for one year each to participate in research and associated specialized educational activities with the possibility of renewal for an additional year.
