Abstract


Strategic prioritization of research agendas to address health problems with a large social and economic burden has increased the demand for interdisciplinary research.

However, research training to equip graduates for careers in interdisciplinary research teams has not kept pace. We offer recommendations to graduate students, universities, health services organizations, and health research funders designed to increase the capacity for interdisciplinary research team training, and provide an example of an existing training program.
