Community Health Scholars Program (CHSP)
The Prevention Research Center of Michigan (PRC/MI) is one of the training sites for the CHSP.† The program is a post-doctoral fellowship designed to meet the need of schools of public health and other health professions for faculty with experience working with communities. Scholars are enabled to develop and enhance skills in working with communities and engaging in community-based participatory research at an institution such as PRC/MI where these skills are needed. Fellows placed with the PRC/MI identify an academic and community advisor and a research project to complete during the two-year program.
† Scholars may be eligible to be placed at one of two other Prevention Research Centers at Johns Hopkins University or the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This program is intended for applicants who have completed all requirements for post-professional training at the doctoral level (e.g., PhD, MD, JD, DrPH) and are committed to a scholarly career as a faculty member in a health professional school; the emphasis is on schools of public health.
