Faculty of Medicine in Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta, Indonesia has been selected to host an international postgraduate training scheme for Masters and Doctorate level students, providing full scholarship for up to 50 awardees (2015-2019). The grants are available for students from low- and middle-income countries of WHO South East Asia and West Pacific regions. The training will be focused on the implementation research, which supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them.
The scheme, which is provided by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases based at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, provides full scholarship. Only applicants from low- and middle-income countries of WHO South-East Asia and West Pacific regions are eligible.
The training will be focused on courses relevant to a career in implementation research. Implementation research is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in low- and middle- income countries where many health interventions do not research those who need them the most. The goal of this scheme is to enhance postgraduate training capacity and boost the number of researchers in low and middle- income countries. Further information on implementation research is available from: www.who.int/tdr/publications/topics/ir-toolkit/en/
Ten (10) scholarships for Master Degree Programme will be offered in the International Master Programme in Public Health, leading to a MPH degree (2 years duration) for academic year 2016/2017. The programme is taught in English.
Recipients will be enrolled as postgraduate students, and their careers will be tracked with the new TDR Global alumni and stakeholder platform that will be launched in the next year, providing ongoing monitoring of the impact of the programme, as well as networking and increased visibility opportunities for students.
