About The Program
The Columbia University Research Fellowship in Global Mental Health and Implementation Science (T32) provides postdoctoral training to the next generation of Global Mental Health scientists.
The T32 Global Mental Health Research Fellowship is a post-doctoral research fellowship directed by Drs. Milton Wainberg and Melissa Arbuckle. This fellowship is open to individuals who have received their doctorate (or medical) degree at the time of appointment, have a record of academic excellence, and have demonstrated a commitment to a career GMH research. Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, T32 GMH Research Fellows receive two or three years of funding.
The fellowship’s focus is two-fold:
- deployment-focused interventions research, whereby fellows learn how to develop interventions suited for deployment in resource poor areas. In addition, fellows acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for adapting efficacious interventions to diverse settings with the help of community collaborators. These interventions directly address components of prevention, recognition, assessment, and treatment, and are field tested for efficiency and clinical utility
- intervention dissemination, implementation, and services research, which teaches fellows the process of translating mental health preventions, assessments, and treatment interventions to specific LMIC settings and study outcomes. Under the direction of Milton Wainberg, MD and Maria Oquendo, MD, this fellowship is open to individuals who have received their doctorate (or medical) degree at the time of appointment, have a record of academic excellence, and have demonstrated a commitment to a career GMH research.
