The San Diego State University Minority Health and Health Disparities International Research Training program (SDSU MHIRT) is a component of the national MHIRT program funded by the National Institutes of Health. We provide international training experiences to students from health disparity backgrounds with a goal of encouraging such students to pursue careers in biomedical, clinical, and behavioral health research. The ultimate mission of the MHIRT program is for MHIRT trainee alumni, through their careers as researchers and medical professionals, to work to reduce, and eventually eliminate, healthcare disparities in the United States.
NOTE: Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic, there is a possibility that our proposed timeline may change, or that the SDSU MHIRT Program may be suspended in 2021. Our staff is monitoring the world situation closely, and will be updating our website as new information becomes available.
