Applications for the UCSF HEAL Initiative (http://healinitiative.org/) global health fellowship are open until 15 October 2015!

The Heal Initiative is an innovative two-year post-residency global health fellowship dedicated to equipping health providers with the knowledge and expertise needed to effectively serve in resource limited settings, both internationally and in the U.S. We are currently recruiting post-residency physicians as well as nurse practitioners.
 
Through the HEAL Initiative, we are linking together health professionals dedicated to serving their community and to learning from others like them all around the world. Over the course of 2 years fellows serve in underserved sites in the U.S. such as Navajo Nation and international sites such as Haiti, India, Liberia, Malawi, Mexico, and Nepal. In addition to an online Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, our fellows will come away with a set of robust and versatile skills essential to improving the delivery of health care around the world.
 
Our goal is to provide the next generation of global health practitioners with the training program we wish we ourselves had gone through. We are looking to spread the word of our fellowship and to invite health providers who are passionate about health equity to apply for our program beginning in July 2016. Applications can be found here: http://healinitiative.org/join-us/apply-to-be-a-fellow/.

Hi
Is yo program open for people who have studied or are still studying at US
institutions only? Or you also consider people from other institutions
outside US. Do you also allied health professionals as biomedical
scientist with public health background or pharmacists etc

I understand the program outcomes leads to masters in public health however this does not consist of nurses and clinicians only. i hope even us with statistics background should be given a chance since we are now leading healthcare initiatives and research.
For example i pretested an idea of
converging communication technologies to end preventable maternal deaths in western Uganda. so if i am considered for the fellowship my community will reap alot at the end.

Hello All,
Thank you for your interest and questions.

At this time we are recruiting Physicians and NPs who are eligible to practice in the US. We recruit those working in other sub-specialties (such as the ones Sydney outlined) through our partner sites. These candidates must already be employed by our partner sites, however.

Thanks again. You can learn more by attending an upcoming webinar: http://healinitiative.org/join-us/upcoming-talks/
