2014 -2015 Global Heath Corps Fellowship Application Is On

Global Health Corps (GHC) provides a yearlong paid fellowship for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to serve on the front lines of the fight for global health equity at existing health organizations and government agencies. 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 to Ministries of Health.

Global Health Corps recruits and selects highly qualified applicants with diverse skill sets to fill specific positions at these organizations. Fellows have built financial management systems for grassroots HIV organizations in Uganda, counseled homeless teenagers in New Jersey on smart health decisions, supported district pharmacies in Rwanda in rolling out new supply chain management tools and conducted women’s health policy research in Washington DC.

Fellows work in teams of two – one  in-country fellow partnered with one international fellow – to support our placement organizations in improving healthcare access and health outcomes for the poor.

Fellows are currently working in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia and the United States.

To be selected on the program, you have to meet the following criteria below:

  • Be 30 or under at the start of the fellowship
  • Have an under-graduate degree by July 2014
  • Be proficient in English
