The Global Brain Health Institute is now accepting applications for its 2020/21 cohort of Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health. This programme provides innovative training in brain health, leadership, and dementia prevention to a wide range of promising leaders from various professions, including medicine, science, business, law, social science, journalism and the arts. Fellows are provided with a base at the University of California, San Francisco or Trinity College Dublin over a 12-month fellowship.

Through their work, fellows are expected to emphasize local and global health inequities that need to be addressed by practitioners and policymakers, with the goal of reducing the scale and impact of dementia in local communities around the world.

Fellows benefit from:

  • A residential 12-month fellowship with a base at the University of California, San Francisco or Trinity College Dublin
  • One-to-one mentoring on projects aimed at advancing brain health
  • Weekly courses on health economics, epidemiology, leadership, law and ethics, neuroscience, public policy, behavioral neurology, statistics, brain health, and dementia, among other topics
  • Observation and participation in clinical cases
  • Access to a network of researchers, clinicians, and policy makers for career-length mentoring
  • Access to the communities of all Atlantic Fellows programmes, which together create a global community to advance fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies
  • Access to competitively awarded funds for pilot projects that could be completed in their home country upon completion of the fellowship
  • A living allowance during the course of training

Application deadline: 31 January 2020
