The final application and admission to the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Training Program is through the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. All predoctoral students accepted to the Department will be considered for funding, no separate application is required. Postdoctoral applicants must work with program directors and staff to identify a mentor before applying, more information on the postdoctoral application process can be found here. Each year, well-qualified predoctoral and postdoctoral applicants are selected as trainees to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees or undertake postdoctoral training under the preceptorship of an epidemiology faculty member. Qualified candidates should possess a bachelor’s degree and have completed coursework in biology and mathematics.

Only U.S. citizens and permanent U.S. residents are eligible for this training program.

Admission criteria to the program include promise as a future researcher as well as compatibility with the existing mentors. The latter criterion is particularly important for research postdoctoral fellows, who must identify a research mentor prior to admission.
