Global Health Scholars Program

The Community and Global Health Scholars Program is a 5-year program for students who plan a career in global health and wish to pursue rigorous independent scholarship in this interdisciplinary field.  The Scholars program includes and builds upon the components of the Honors program, with an additional one year field experience in a low-resource setting, or the Global Health Fieldwork Fellowship.  The additional scholarly and experiential requirements will culminate with the student graduating with an MD with Honors in Community and Global Health and the Global Health Scholar distinction.

Honors students who are interested in participating in the Fieldwork Fellowship should apply for the position in January of their third year. Students must be in good academic standing, as well as current on Global Health Honors program requirements. Please submit your application by January 1st.

The Community and Global Health Scholars Fellowship year takes place in Palacios, Bolivia at the Centro Medico Humberto Parra.
