Training Opportunities.

The AAPH seeks to serve as a leading regional public health training hub and center of excellence. AAPH leads training and education initiatives to seek the translation of scientific and health findings into practice. AAPH facilitates cutting-edge doctoral and post-doctoral level training of public health leaders in multidisciplinary fields. The AAPH is in the process of exploring future opportunities, partnerships and approaches for increased training and mentoring capacity for health sciences, including enhancing distance learning opportunities in order to engage and reach a wider audience. As such, the Academy is seeking to increase North-South-South institutional partnerships. Fostering sustainable research capacity has been a long-term goal of this collaboration and has resulted in: degree training at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health (including master’s and doctoral degrees); post-doctoral training in innovative laboratory methods in virology, immunology, epidemiology, and biostatistics; short-course training in topics including research methods, biostatistics and epidemiology, and manuscript development; annual symposia; small research grants; and mentored research experience for medical and public health students.
