October 12, 2012
The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation recently announced grants totaling $5.2 million that will be dispersed across six United States Universities to help medical students participate in global healthcare.
With these grants, the Duke University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Yale University School of Medicine, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, the University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine and the University of Minnesota School of Medicine will offer International Clinical Research Fellowships (ICRF) over the next four years.
"We look forward to working with these institutions to give medical students the unique opportunity to participate in an outstanding clinical research project in a low or middle-income country," said Betsy Myers, program director for medical research.
Myers adds that through these efforts, the team hopes to spark interest among participating students to become the next generation of global healthcare providers and researchers.
