Doris Duke International Clinical Research Fellowship for Medical Students

The International Clinical Research Fellowship (ICRF) program provides fellowships for U.S.-based medical students to take a year out from school to conduct mentored clinical research and pursue coursework in developing countries.

Clinical research requires a unique blend of medical and research skills. The ICRF program was designed to support this blending of skills by giving medical students an outstanding clinical research experience in global health while they are in the midst of developing their medical proficiency. The long-term goal of this program is to develop the next generation of clinical investigators working in global health.  

ICRF is administered through six U.S. medical schools with established programs in global health research. Each school is responsible for overseeing the selection of applicants and providing the mentored research experience:

-Duke University School of Medicine and Duke Global Health Institute
