Fogarty International Center Grants at YSPH

The NIH's John Fogarty International Center sponsors research training grants that provide funding to train researchers, building sustainable expertise in low-and middle-income countries. Over the life of these grants, over 200 public health professionals and researchers have received mentorship and training from Yale’s world class faculty. 



To assist with capacity building of faculty and public health research, a partnership between the Bhutan Foundation and YSPH to facilitate faculty and student exchanges.

Yale University and the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA)

This partnership with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), also known in the past as the Chinese State FDA (sFDA), provides training in the area of regulatory affairs (RA) to future CFDA leaders at the central Beijing office and all of its Chinese provincial offices. The program was developed in 2007 by YSPH faculty member and Program Director, Dr. Robert Makuch, and the Deputy Commissioner of the sFDA in recognition of China’s rapidly expanding pharmaceutical market, ongoing food safety issues and recognition by sFDA senior leadership of the importance of meeting worldwide regulatory standards for ensuring public health.

Yale Hospital Management and Leadership Program (China) The Yale Hospital Management and Leadership Program is an executive training program tailored for the Chinese government’s National Health and Family Planning Commission and its Hospital President Professionalization Scheme, an initiative that aims to train 50,000 hospital administrators in management and leadership by 2020. The program includes three modules during which hospital administrators study leadership and management concepts with health care faculty and practitioners from Yale University. The program is delivered in two week-long residential modules; the first is held in Beijing at the Yale Center Beijing and the second is held six months later at the Yale University campus in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. The residential modules expose delegates (program participants) to management and leadership concepts, hospital management case studies, and lectures from world-class faculty and practitioners. Between these modules, delegates receive remote mentoring and online coaching from Yale faculty on an applied field project. This program is a collaboration between, IMD Consulting Co, Yale Global Health Leadership Institute, and the Capacity Building and Continuing Education Center of the National Health and Family Planning Commission.


The Yale Health and Social Care Strategic Leadership Programme  is a collaboration with the United Kingdom National Health Service and Health Education England that delivers executive-style leadership and management education to mid-career and senior executives with backgrounds in clinical care health administration, private sector, regulation, and commissioning in the health and social services fields. The programme uses experiential teaching methods including interactive lectures, facilitated discussions, team exercises, health facility site visits, and field projects through which delegates (program participants) develop and apply key leadership skills to complex and diverse contemporary health and social care challenges within the NHS. The program integrates traditional management and leadership training, informal professional development, and project-based learning to create a unique experience that equips delegates with the skills and confidence needed to become effective contributors to the transformational change required by the NHS. Through the two in-person modules and a delegate-driven field project, the program presents cross cutting perspectives and focusses on the leadership functions across the health and social care system. The aim is not only to introduce new knowledge and concepts, but also to support emerging and mid-career clinician and non-clinician in leadership and administrative roles to significantly improve their practice, cultivate work environments that foster innovation, and step into key roles to take on new responsibilities to work across the UK health and social care system. The program is 9 months in duration. Module 1 takes place over 6 days in a retreat-style setting in the UK. Throughout the programme each delegate completes a field project using the strategic problem solving methodology. Module 2 takes place over 6 days on the Yale campus in New Haven.
