For individuals, HIT Lab fellowships provide unparalleled opportunities to advance academic and professional skills, and to earn recognition for and publication of your work. Participants work side-by-side with our reputable scholars and researchers and become lifelong members of the HIT Lab community.
Exposure to the expertise of the HIT Lab’s veteran researchers is supplemented by access to state-of-the-art research facilities. While our own lab is well-equipped, HIT Lab fellows are also able to use academic and recreational resources available on the broader Columbia University campus.
Our research fellowships operate under two programs:
Developing Emerging Leaders in Public Health Initiative (DELPHI)
DELPHI is designed to identify and develop the next generation of public health leaders. The program was instituted at the HIT Lab in 2011 to address the need for developing young leadership in public healthcare. The DELPHI program offers emerging leaders experience with healthcare provision in the United States and worldwide. During the fellowship, emerging leaders are exposed to the meaning and use of technology as it relates to healthcare, along with extensive training on conducting research in healthcare and outcomes evaluation. Additional training on leadership skills, communication skills, innovation, networking, media skills etc are available along with mentoring and coaching sessions.
We are seeking highly motivated individuals that have a commitment to public health and are seeking to gain exposure in the field of research. The 15-month program is targeted towards students who are currently pursuing a career in public health. The right candidate will possess a stellar academic record, excellent oral and written communication skills and exposure to biostatistics, epidemiology and technology.
