Global Health Corps Fellowship

Global Health Corps provides a yearlong paid fellowship for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the front lines of the fight for global health equity at existing health organizations and government agencies. Fellows are currently working in Rwanda, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia and the United States.

GHC recruits placement organizations that are doing excellent work in improving healthcare access and health outcomes in impoverished communities. Placement organizations range from small grassroots organizations to large global institutions. Global Health Corps recruits and selects highly qualified applicants with diverse skill sets for specific fellowship positions at these organizations.

Fellows work in teams of two – one international fellow, one in-country fellow to support our placement organizations in improving healthcare access and health outcomes for the poor. The year begins with a 2-week Training Institute at Yale University for all fellows, followed by retreats and workshops throughout the year. In addition, fellows have access to distance learning and collaboration opportunities, an advising program, professional development funds and networking opportunities, and GHC staff site visits and check-ins.

Applicants must be 30 and under, have an undergraduate degree by the start of the fellowship, and be proficient in English.
