The Weill Cornell Medicine Career Advancement for Research in Health Equity (CARE T37) program, which is made possible (in part) by 1T37MD014220 from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, is intended to provide early exposure to health equity research and global health for pre-doc and post-doctoral trainees. The long-term goal of this program is to increase the diversity and number of scientists working across disciplines to improve health equity and global health. In no particular order, components of the CARE program include an intensive 2-month summer didactic session that provides a general introduction to healthcare/scientific research fundamentals; project—based mentoring for research experience; and opportunities for global health experience at NIH-funded global health research sites in developing countries such as Haiti, Brazil, Tanzania, and Ghana.
