The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) Scholars Program is a 3–12-month program designed to train people from broad disciplines including science and medicine, journalists, artists, writers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, technologists, anthropologists, ethicists, lawyers, etc. All GBHI scholars will be passionate advocates for elders, healthy and impaired. Successful applicants should demonstrate the drive to learn about aging and diseases of aging, adapt to different cultures, and lead change throughout their careers.

Like the Atlantic Fellows Program, the curriculum for scholars will be tailored for each individual's experience and plan. A core curriculum of neuroscience, neurobehavior, epidemiology, statistics, leadership, communications, health economics, and public policy will constitute part of the experience. Course availability may vary with program start date and duration. Scholars will receive mentoring on their projects,  careers, leadership, and impact on brain health.

Scholars will have engagements at either UCSF or Trinity College Dublin, and up to 32 positions will be filled annually. All scholars will have:

  • A customized, three-to-twelve-month experience
  • One-to-one mentoring
  • Teaching on health economics, leadership, policy, brain health, and dementia, among other topics
  • Observation and participation in clinical cases
  • Access to a network of researchers, clinicians, and policy makers for career-length mentoring and communication
