As a core area of the Center for the Study of Asian American Health, the Health Disparities Research Training Program (HDRTP) provides training, outreach, and research opportunities for students and health professionals to gain knowledge and skills to address Asian American health disparities. Through hands-on experience on a community-based research project, HDRTP interns will develop a deeper understanding of culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches to research, outreach, community partnerships, and care delivery in Asian American populations. More than 300 college, graduate, and postgraduate health professionals have successfully participated in HDRTP.
The program offers a research training opportunity to qualified college, graduate, as well as post-graduate health professionals, and intends to:
- Increase competence and commitment among trainees to work in community-based participatory research (CBPR) on Asian American health disparities;
- Increase the number of potential investigators from Asian American and economically disadvantaged groups to conduct research in Asian American health disparities; and
- Increase the number of research projects addressing health disparities among Asian American populations.
HDRTP is open to students and health professionals who are interested in gaining skills to conduct community-based participatory research (CBPR) with Asian American communities. Students and professionals in medicine, public health, social work, nursing and other health related fields are encouraged to apply. The program also considers physicians and other allied professionals at various levels of their careers who desire to explore opportunities in research. To be eligible for the training program, a prospective candidate must:
- Have previous experience working with Asian American communities;
- Be committed to addressing disparities in Asian American health;
- Have a willingness to work and learn from colleagues at varying levels of health expertise; and
- Have an interest and/or familiarity with qualitative and quantitative research methods
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
