SIDM Fellowship Applicants

The SIDM Fellowship program, now in its third year, attracts highly qualified candidates who demonstrate commitment to diagnosis-related work and pairs them with recognized experts who serve as advisors and mentors.  The Fellowship program has been expanded this year through a $567,500 grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The foundation grant will provide stipends for individuals who seek advanced training (Masters or PhD) who have developed proposals for promising work in diagnosis related areas, beginning with the University of Pennsylvania in 2018.

Two out of three 2019-2020 funded positions are reserved for University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University. Interested applicants will need to apply to those programs in addition to the SIDM fellowship. The deadline to apply at the University of Pennsylvania is November 30.
