The Pulmonary Complications of AIDS Research Training (PART) Program is based at Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS) and works through a collaboration between MakCHS and University of California Berkeley and Yale University in the USA. The goal of the training program is to improve the research skills of Ugandan physicians, scientists, and other investigators. 

This training program is now soliciting nominations for research training positions that will lead to PhD or in Masters in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MSc CEB), Masters in Public Health (MPH) and Masters in Medicine & Pediatrics (MMed) at Makerere University. Support for PhD or Masters degrees in a discipline related to implementation science will also be considered strongly provided the relevance of the program’s focus is described in the application. Funding and mentorship support for a maximum of two years for Master’s programs and three years for PhD programs will be available to the selected candidates. Continuing support will depend in part on the trainee’s performance. Support for the MMed will be available for up to two years starting in the third year of the training, the period during which the candidate is expected to be conducting a mentored research thesis project. These candidates will be eligible for a second year of mentored research immediately following the MMed based on timely and successful completion of the degree requirements at the discretion of the program directors.

The candidates eligible to apply are new and continuing trainees admitted to the courses above. 
Criteria for Selection:
1. Demonstrated interest in research and public health on TB or other pulmonary complications of HIV/AIDS;
2. Willingness to conduct a rigorously mentored dissertation project in this area as part of the degree program;
3. Commitment to develop and maintain a productive career devoted to research, control, and prevention of TB or other pulmonary complications of HIV/AIDS;
4. Agreement to conform to rules and regulations of the training institutions and maintain in good standing with the institution.
5. At least 2 years’ experience working in a full-time research project

This application will be reviewed by Drs. Reingold, Davis, and Katamba. If you are applying for academic training (e.g., MPH) you must also submit a formal application to the degree-granting institution, following all instructions for international students as directed by that institution’s application procedures.

The application must be completed in English.

Applications for Degree Programs are accepted annually in July; Applications for Short Training Courses are accepted on an ongoing basis at least 3 months in advance of the planned training.
