SUNY Downstate Medical Center
Brooklyn Health Disparities Center
The Training Core aims towards building and enhancing minority health services and outcomes research capacity at the Center, while offering the infrastructure necessary to recruit and train qualified minority college students, medical students, medical residents and fellows. The CORE provides training in the areas of health disparities research (i.e., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, dyslipedimia, mental health, cancer, sleep apnea, and others). Upon completion of their training, trainees are equipped with considerable scientific knowledge and skills, display an ethical approach to clinical problems and have the potential to become productive members of the scientific community and advocates for wellness.
