The Center supports the training of postdoctoral fellows for a two or three year term. Fellows gain direct research experience in cardiovascular risk reduction, community and health psychology, translational behavioral medicine, and clinical epidemiology. Fellows are expected to contribute to research projects funded through the Center and to design and conduct a substantive original research project of agreed upon mutual interest, suitable for presentation and publication in the scientific literature.


  • To be eligible for the program, applicants must have a doctoral degree in psychology, medicine, public health, health education or related field
  • Fellows are expected to submit at least two manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals per year
  • Fellows are expected to give two to three presentations per year at national conferences in their interest area
