The Atlantic Fellows Program at Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) has been designed to train and support individuals from diverse fields, including but not limited to clinicians (psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, nurses, social workers, etc.) and scientists (epidemiologists, health economists, neuroscientists, psychologists, public health, policy specialists, etc.). Fellows will typically be early-career trainees and should demonstrate the ability to ask questions that cut across disciplines, adapt to different cultural contexts, and lead change throughout their careers. Successful applicants will demonstrate excellence in past activities and have strong regional support that assures successful transition back into regional programs.
The curriculum for fellows will be customized for each individual's experience and plan. A core curriculum of neuroscience, neurobehavior, epidemiology, statistics, leadership, communications, health economics, and public policy will constitute about 15% of the experience. Opportunities to evaluate individuals with cognitive disorders will be available. Through intensive mentoring, fellows will be guided in the development of their careers, leadership, and policy change.
Fellows will have two-year appointments at either UCSF or Trinity College Dublin, and up to eight positions are expected to be filled annually. All fellows will have:
