The Welch Center abounds with trainees, many of whom are enrolled in specific training programs led by Welch Center faculty. Some of the programs are supported by T32 training grants from the NIH. This section of the website provides an overview of those programs.

We conduct training for junior faculty, clinical fellows, doctoral and masters’ degree candidates, medical residents, medical students, and public health students. Through these formal training programs, and teaching courses, we identify and invest in new talent by providing them with the guidance, mentorship, and resources to succeed. 

Our approach to mentorship enables our trainees to become leaders in the field of their choosing. Several of our past trainees now hold faculty positions at institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, Case Western Reserve University and Harvard University. Our past trainees also secure leadership positions in federal institutions, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics, and in industry at companies such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, and McKesson. No matter their end goal, we instill in our trainees a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, and intensive work ethic, preparing them for future success.

The atmosphere of collaboration, mentorship, and opportunity for professional development is unparalleled. The Welch Center is truly a wonderful place for trainees. Having accessible mentors that promoted their trainees afforded me a sense of confidence knowing that there was support to address obstacles, and also gave me a chance to experience the many exciting and rewarding aspects of an academic career, which helped form my values in a long-term career.”
