Multiple Research Opportunities Available in Kenya

The Family Aids Care and Education Services (FACES) organization in Nyanza Province, Kenya, has a number of exciting opportunities for trainees interested in research during summer 2014. FACES is a UCSF collaboration with the Kenya Medical Research Institute. The research projects range from mapping and texting projects to community case management and family planning issues. Eligible trainees include students in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and dentistry, as well as residents. The minimum time commitment is 6 weeks, but SOM students who seek funding through RAPtr must make a minimum commitment of 8 weeks. These research opportunities are available on a first come, first served basis, and depend on whether the investigators determine that the trainee is a good fit for their project.
