ISGMH is committed to training the next generation of SGM health scholars. To that end, it has developed a postdoctoral training program with the goal of providing its postdoctoral fellows with ongoing training in SGM health research and professional development.
Postdoctoral training activities supplement existing educational events at ISGMH, such as the Current Issues in LGBTQ Health lecture series, which showcases current work in the field of SGM health. Additionally, while the program is intended to provide broad training in SGM health research, it is also designed to be flexible in nature in order to accommodate the diverse interests and goals of the current postdoctoral fellows. As such, the training program is led and facilitated by a lead postdoctoral fellow with faculty input and oversight.
T32 Training Program in Translational Science, HIV, and Sexual and Gender Minority Health
The program is funded by a T32 grant from the National Institutes of Health and enrolls three postdoctoral fellows each year for two-year appointments. Trainees receive primary and secondary mentorship from faculty at ISGMH and Feinberg School of Medicine and across Northwestern University. Learn about our T32 Training Program.
