Activity Description

The Uganda Research Training Collaborative (RTC) is a program for students in the University of Minnesota’s Academic Health Center and Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda to gain hands-on experience in global health research. Under the mentorship of UMN and Makerere faculty members, two students (one each from UMN and Makerere) propose small-scale research projects to be carried out, as a team, in about one year.
