2015/2016 Global Health Corps for Young Professionals

Application Deadline: February 3, 2015

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

GHC pairs young professionals from the United States and abroad to work in paid, year-long fellowships with organizations serving poor communities in East Africa, Southern Africa, and the United States. Global Health Corps recruits fellows from a wide range of skill sets. Fellows work in teams of two; each pair is made up of one American fellow and one international fellow to promote cross-cultural awareness and understanding.

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.
