Applications open for the Takemi Program in International Health 2023.The Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health welcomes mid-career health professionals and scholars to conduct ground-breaking research and improve their leadership abilities as part of the Takemi Program in International Health, which aims to enhance health and health systems around the world.
With a focus on low- and middle-income countries, Takemi Fellows investigate issues with mobilizing, allocating, and managing limited resources to promote health as well as creating efficient techniques for disease control and prevention.
A select number of researchers and professionals in their mid-career chosen each year by the program to spend an academic year at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. The Takemi Program gives participants the room, time, and flexibility they need to develop their leadership and research skills.
Fellows have access to two crucial resources to help them with this: knowledgeable instructors and the weekly Takemi Seminar Series. Additionally, Fellows have the chance to work together throughout the Harvard community and might choose to take appropriate coursework to expand their theoretical or practical understanding. Fellows use these tools to create at least one paper that is publishable.

- Further, expected to have made, or intend to make, a commitment to a career in health for which participation in the Program will be of significant value.
- Applications may come from any relevant discipline or profession (e.g., medicine, law, public health, economics, management, and social sciences).
Takemi Fellows work independently, under the supervision of their advisor (a member of the Harvard faculty), and the Takemi Program Director, Michael Reich, and Executive Director, Jesse Bump.
Throughout the Program, Fellows are required to:
- Meet regularly with their faculty advisor to receive feedback on their project and assistance with their progress.
- Attend and participate in the Takemi Program weekly seminar
- Present research progress throughout the year via scheduled Preliminary, Mid-year, and Final presentations
