LSHTM Postgraduate Training Fellowship in Medical Statistics 2021 for African Students

Two fellowships are available, funded by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health at LSHTM, to provide support for two years training in medical statistics. 

The ISEG Postgraduate Training Fellowship in Medical Statistics for African Scientists launched in 2005 and forms a key part of ISEG’s investment in capacity strengthening. The Scheme enables promising research students from Sub-Saharan Africa to undertake MSc training in Medical Statistics at LSHTM followed by a year working as a statistician at one of our partner centres in Africa. The fellow continues to receive mentoring, supervision and support for the duration of their fellowship from members of our Group.

The summer project, chosen by the fellow, often provides an introduction to the research topic to be pursued further during the placement year. During the placement year, the fellow is exposed to different aspects of research including study design, data management, analysis and reporting of findings. They are guided by local statisticians and researchers as well as relevant ISEG members.

For the first year the successful applicants will study for the MSc degree in Medical Statistics at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). This will be followed by a one-year professional attachment at one of the African centres associated with the research programme of the MRC International Statistics and Epidemiology Group (ISEG) at LSHTM. During the professional attachment, training Fellows will develop their statistical and research skills by working on studies with guidance from ISEG scientists.

This is intended to foster excellence in the field of medical statistics and epidemiology in sub-Saharan Africa.
