Do trainees receive a degree?
No. All trainees will be non-degree students at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Berman Institute of Bioethics. Trainees will receive a certificate from the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics after they have completed the program.
Can the Partnership Director (PD) also be one of the one-year trainees?
Generally no. Because this is an institutional capacity development partnership, the partnership director will need to have direct engagement with and access to the institution throughout the partnership. However, the partnership director may be considered for one-month or other short-term training, if appropriate.
Can I participate in any courses if my institution is not selected for a one-year partnership?
Yes. There are research ethics and bioethics courses in June that you may participate in; however, we are not able to provide funding for your travel or participation in the coursework. You will have to self-fund or locate another source of funding. If interested, please contact us for more information.
How will I know if my institution has been selected for a training partnership?
Once an institution is selected, all applicants will be notified via email.
If my institution applied in a previous year, can it apply again?
Yes; however, a new application with updated materials is required.
