Hispanic Serving Health Professions Schools

Graduate Fellowship Training Program Overview

 The HSHPS Graduate Fellowship Training Program provides paid training opportunities for graduate and doctoral students and recent graduates interested in working on Hispanic health research.

Fellows are placed throughout the United States and Latin America within government agencies and academic institutions. All HSHPS fellows work along side a mentor, an experienced researcher or senior staff member; assist with a research project as it relates to minority health issues; and participate in a series of professional development seminars. 

The training programs are designed to:

  •    Enhance the trainee’s research and professional development skills
  •    Increase the trainee’s knowledge about Hispanic and other minority health issues
  •    Provide opportunities to network with other health professionals



Going on to its 12th year, HSHPS has trained over 300 fellows. Most work with Hispanic and other minority groups in government or academia, pursued higher degrees, published research, received NIH grants, and stay connected with HSHPS!
