Acceptance into the NIDA-funded HIV Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI) is highly competitive. Applicants must have a doctoral, medical or equivalent degree in social, behavioral, medical, nursing, public health or related fields, as well as demonstrated scholarship in HIV prevention research. Fellows are involved in the RETI program over a period of 2-years, beginning with an intensive 10-day summer program. During these ten days, fellows have the opportunity to engage with leading professionals in the field of HIV prevention research ethics, gain knowledge on the ethical challenges surrounding HIV research, and acquire skills to empirically examine these issues. Fellows also have the opportunity to begin developing a funded mentored research project in empirical HIV research ethics.
Fellows accepted to the RETI program have extensive HIV prevention research experience, demonstrate leadership and scholarly potential for the field of HIV prevention research ethics, and exhibit commitment and sensitivity to the ethical issues integral to research involving vulnerable populations.
