Global Health Fellows Program

I often meet individuals who are interested in global health opportunities. How many people do you know who are working in some type of global health organization? I know an infectious disease physician (MD, MPH) working for the WHO in China. I also know a few individuals working in international continuing medical education (CME) companies. CME rules and regulations are very different when you go outside the United States.

If you have an MPH and you're thinking about international health opportunities, consider the Global Health Fellows Program. 
The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute (PHI) in partnership with the Harvard School of Public Health, Management Systems International, and Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. GHFP is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

GHFP’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID Population, Health and Nutrition programs by developing and increasing capacity of health professionals in Washington, DC and overseas. This is accomplished through the recruitment, placement and support of junior, mid- and senior-level health professionals; a diversity initiative focused on providing internship and mentoring opportunities in international public health to under-represented communities; and professional and organizational development activities to bolster USAID’s ability to maximize results and strengthen its leadership role in global health.
There are currently two fellowship openings:

Number Title Location
 GHFP-10-162  Private Sector Technical Advisor  Washington, DC
 GHFP-10-160  Demographic and Health Surveys and Evaluation Technical Advisor  Washington, DC
