Students at Northeastern University will benefit greatly from this initiative. Postdoctoral positions, and unique research opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students will be a strong part of this initiative’s success. All students will be trained to study and find solutions to some of the world’s most neglected diseases.
Postdoctoral students will have opportunities for exposure to key concepts in the area of Global Health. With a primary focus on research within each postdoctoral student’s field, trainees will participate in focused seminar courses, colloquia, and will be provided opportunities for field experiences, conferences and teaching.
Doctoral students will have opportunities for exposure to key concepts in the area of Global Health. Coursework for this program will be modeled by the student’s home department, but will include additional courses that discuss pivotal issues in the parallel streams of the Initiative. Students in this program will cross-train not only in research groups at Northeastern in the greater Boston area, but also within global organizations.
Undergraduate students will have opportunities to work on research programs in the institute. Leveraging the relationships that Northeastern University will develop with the Global Health Community, innovative educational experiences will be created.
