The CDC-Hubert Global Health Fellowship provides opportunities for third- and fourth-year medical and veterinary students to gain valuable public health experience in an international setting, which encourages students to think of public health in a global context. Each year, 10 Hubert fellows spend 6 to 12 weeks in a developing country working on a priority health problem alongside field teams from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Through these experiences, students establish relationships with, and receive training from, experts from CDC and other national and international health agencies.
