The INDOX Training and Fellowship scheme has been running since 2006, giving INDOX members the chance to develop skills and expertise in areas of relevance to their research careers, including protocol writing, GCP, randomised controlled trials and epidemiology. By the end of 2013, 108 INDOX members from our collaborating centres in India will have taken part in a total of 189 courses.
The aims of the fellowship scheme are:
Capacity building – providing INDOX centres with high quality training opportunities for their personnel, enabling them to conduct and participate in investigator initiated research, as well as sponsor initiated trials.
Reducing attrition – providing ongoing professional development to high calibre medical graduates and supporting their careers while they remain working in INDOX centres.
