OHHI Traineeship Program

The OHHI Traineeship Program is designed to build a new cadre of scientists working in the field of OHH and trained across disciplines and institutions to improve public health. Five competitively awarded multi-institution, academically-based Consortia for Graduate Training in Oceans and Human Health provide a foundation for cross-disciplinary OHH training and research.
