The Hispanic Serving Health Professions Schools (HSHPS) Graduate Fellowship Training Program Overview (GFTP) provides paid and unpaid training opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students and recent graduates. It is open to students interested in working on Hispanic health research. Fellows are placed throughout the United States within government agencies and academic institutions.
All HSHPS fellows work alongside a mentor, an experienced researcher or senior staff member; assist with a research project as it relates to minority health issues; and participate in a series of professional development seminars. This program strives to assist individuals to develop skills to work with Hispanic and other minority groups in government and academia, pursue higher degrees, publish research, and stay connected with the HSHPS network.
Now entering its 22nd year, HSHPS has trained over 400 fellows. Most work with Hispanic and other minority groups in government or academia, pursued higher degrees, published research, and/or received NIH grants. HSHPS's GFTP is offering PAID 10-week placements with the Office of Minority Health (OMH)'s, Youth Health Equity Model of Practice (YHEMOP). Fellows will work alongside a mentor and work on projects as they relate to Hispanic and other minority health issues. Please note that although we do not target the GFTP to undergraduate students, we highly encourage third and fourth year undergraduates to apply.
