Health Disparities Research Training Program (HDRTP)

About HDRTP

As a core area of the Section for Health Equity, 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 health disparities among Asian American and other racial/ethnic minority populations. Through hands-on experience on a community-based participatory research (CBPR) 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 and other racial/ethnic minority 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 CBPR on Asian American and other racial/ethnic minority health disparities;
  • Increase the number of potential investigators from Asian American and other racial/ethnic minority populations to conduct research on health disparities; and
  • Increase the number of research projects addressing health disparities among Asian American and other racial/ethnic minority populations.

Summer Seminar Series

The HDRTP Summer Seminar Series provides interns an increased awareness about health issues affecting Asian American and other racial/ethnic minority populations, gaps in health status indicators, barriers/facilitators to both care delivery and research for these populations, as well as panels on careers in public health. Check out our past summer seminar series.
