Thank you for your interest in the Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholars Program. Our established program rotations sites for 2017-18 are in South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda and Colombia. In 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 we have not selected Scholars to go to our site in Liberia, and we are ironing out supervisory and visa issues in Indonesia this year.
In 2017-2018, Johnson & Johnson is sponsoring the stipends of 40 physicians selected from applicants at Yale, Stanford and five other institutions across the US. In addition, we have selected 12 residents from at Yale, Stanford and five other institutions, some of whom are in an self-funded category. This extremely qualified group will be able to rotate through our sites, and use all the resources available to the sponsored group, but they will not receive the J&J financial award that covers the costs of their travel and lodging. We are honored that the J&J program's reputation, on-site support and supervision given to J&J scholars has generated this level of interest and commitment to our goals of developing human infrastructure at our partner sites.
