The Curry International Tuberculosis Center offers mini-fellowship trainings to TB care providers (MDs, nurses, support staff) from the western region of the United States to provide first-hand knowledge and experience in carrying out TB control activities. The goal is to share TB expertise and knowledge with US-based healthcare providers from a variety of settings. Our Center tries to meet the individual needs of those who attend by assessing areas of practice and communities served, and matching your identified objectives with appropriate activities. In order to take advantage of this unique opportunity, please complete the application and indicate those experiences you think will best meet your needs. Upon receipt of your completed application form, we will contact you regarding your acceptance into the program.
