Details

The TEG Training Fellowship Scheme launched in 2005 and forms a key part of TEG’s investment in capacity development strategy. The Scheme enables promising research students from Sub-Saharan Africa to undertake MSc training in Medical Statistics at LSHTM followed by a year working as a statistician at one of their partner centres in Africa. Moreover, the fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of their Group.

Furthermore, three fellowships are available, funded by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), GSK and LSHTM, respectively, to provide support for two years training in medical statistics. In addition, for the first year the successful applicants will study for the MSc degree in Medical Statistics at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). This will be followed by a one-year professional attachment at one of the African centres associated with the research programme of the MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG) at LSHTM. During the professional attachment, training Fellows will develop their statistical and research skills by working on studies with guidance from TEG scientists.
