Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 mHealth Training Institute (mHTI) to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles from July 26 – 31, 2020. The week-long, residential program blends “deep dives” into the latest mHealth technologies and methodologies with team-science projects to provide the selected scholars with the transdisciplinary knowledge, competencies and collaborative networks required to tackle “wicked” healthcare problems. The mHTI is funded by a NIH/OBSSR/ODP/NIDA training grant (R25DA038167) and administratively supported by the NIH Center for Excellence on Mobile Sensor Data-to-Knowledge (MD2K).
Version 2.0 builds on the experiences of previous mHTIs and incorporates feedback and suggestions from past participants. Scholars from earlier institutes have highlighted a wide range of benefits, describing the mHTI as “transformative” and “a seminal experience in my professional development” with a “wonderful atmosphere and congeniality among scholars” and “terrific and generous faculty.” The mHTI derives from the mentoring provided by a core group of experienced faculty; mHealth thought-leaders who are dedicated to developing the next generation of mHealth scientists. Details of previous mHealth Training Institutes including scholars, faculty, and programs are available at https://mhti.md2k.org/.
Application Deadline: 11:59 PM, EASTERN TIME, Sunday, March 1, 2020.
Notifications of acceptance: April 15, 2020.
