Benjamin H. Kean Travel Fellowship in Tropical Medicine

Image

The Benjamin H. Kean Travel Fellowship in Tropical Medicine is awarded annually to support medical students involved in clinical or research electives in tropical areas. The Fellowship is designed to encourage young people to continue their work in tropical medicine and hygiene and recognize their achievements so far.

The Fellowship is named after Benjamin H. Kean (1912-1993), the founder of the tropical medical program and a renowned professor of clinical tropical diseases and public health at Cornell University. In addition to being one of the most respected and admired educators at Cornell, Dr. Kean is known for his work in discovering travelers' disease and for being a physician to many of the best-known personalities of the 20th Century, ranging from artist Salvador Dali to Broadway lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II to writer Sherwood Anderson to the Shah of Iran.

ASTMH presents the Ben Kean Fellowships to strengthen the link between the past accomplishments of the clinicians and researchers in tropical medicine and hygiene and the next generation of leaders in the field.

This fellowship is designed to support medical students involved in clinical or research electives in tropical areas.
