Section for Global Health Training for Health Professionals
With a focus on capacity building, NYU Langone’s Section for Global Health provides research training to learners at multiple levels of the university system and at partner institutions. To build global capacity, our faculty partner with investigators and trainees in low- and middle-income countries to build capacity across multiple health research areas.
Implementation Science Lab
The Implementation Science Lab is housed in the Section for Global Health. This lab brings together implementation scientists, trainees, and students from the Section for Global Health, Saint Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice, and Queen’s University School of Medicine to advance the field of implementation science research and improve population health globally.
Our vision is to advance innovative and sustainable health globally. We create innovative solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of populations around the world, educate the next generation of implementation science researchers, and engage with partners to develop, implement, and sustain locally led research programs and policies.
Our NYU Langone faculty contact is Olugbenga G. Ogedegbe, MD, MPH.
Completed Training Programs
Recently completed training programs include the following.
The Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program
The Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program (CaRT) trained 64 Ghanaian and Nigerian investigators at the University of Ghana in Accra to conduct research related to cardiovascular health and compete for extramural funding. The program, funded from 2011 to 2016 by the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center, aimed to increase the number of researchers and health services professionals in sub-Saharan Africa to manage the region’s growing cardiovascular disease burden. We prepared trainees to establish sustainable cardiovascular research capacity and pursue innovative projects targeting hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and stroke prevention. The program is seeking funding renewal and is not currently enrolling new scholars.
