Thailand Public Health Research Fellowship (TPHR)

The programme offers 12-month global health fellowships focusing on non-communicable diseases in a healthcare system that is different in resource and structure to the NHS. Fellows will work in partnership with teams in Thai medical schools, universities, and hospitals.  Fellows will be supported by an experienced team of mentors, clinical supervisors and research partner organisations. A stipend is provided for the duration of the programme.
