Training Program at the Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine

The Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine (CBPM) is strongly committed to educating the next generation of outstanding researchers in the scientific disciplines of behavioral and preventive medicine. The Centers provide a highly supportive and rich environment for research and training that embodies the values of integrity, respect, and collegiality. CBPM is home to 24 faculty with academic backgrounds in clinical, social, and quantitative psychology, medical anthropology, exercise physiology, epidemiology, biostatistics, and medicine. These faculty work closely with 12 to 15 trainees, collaborating actively on research and professional development.

Faculty-trainee teams also partner with colleagues from other centers and departments at Brown University as well as with colleagues from local hospitals and community-based, national, and international organizations. CBPM maintains a large research portfolio and hosts a nationally recognized predoctoral resident and postdoctoral fellowship training program in behavioral and preventive medicine. Both pre- and postdoctoral training opportunities are supported by institutional, National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other sponsors.
