This program focuses on reforming higher education in Africa by helping universities develop exciting environments for academic and research pursuits and supporting promising African scholars at affiliated universities to obtain high-quality doctoral training in public and population health-related fields.
- The Joint Advanced Seminars: Central to the training of fellows is a series of residential Joint Advanced Seminars (JAS). The seminars are designed to enhance the fellows’ skills and knowledge, guide them through the research process, and provide them a foundation for building networks of researchers, peers, and mentors. The JAS are offered four times and brings together cohorts of doctoral fellows to discuss their research and engage in critical self-reflection. The formal trainings during JAS are complemented by inter-JAS activities that encourage fellows to stay connected and engage with peers and mentors as part of an online community of practice and graduate in a timely manner.
