Global Health Hospitalist Fellowship

By Vince DeGennaro | 13 Aug, 2013

University of Florida Global Health-Hospitalist Fellowship

In July 2014, the University of Florida and Project Medishare will begin the Global Health-Hospitalist Fellowship. Project Medishare is a medical service delivery and public health non-profit organization. We are looking for internal or family medicine doctors interested in spending one or two years learning the skills for a career in global health and hospitalist medicine.

Clinical Work: The fellowship will be one or two years in duration, with the fellows spending six months of each year as Hospitalists in the growing and dynamic University of Florida Division of Hospital Medicine at UF Health. The other six months will be spent in Haiti with Project Medishare.

Education: Fellows will receive instruction through the Department of Epidemiology classes and complete a Global Health Certificate by the end of two years. During the optional second year, fellows will attend a two-month course for a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in either Peru or Uganda/Tanzania.

Research: Fellows will work on Project Medishare’s public health grants throughout the fellowship and are expected to present at a conference or publish by the end of the fellowship.

Teaching: The fellows will serve as faculty for residents and medical school students when they are in Haiti, and they will have teaching opportunities while at UF Health as well.

Benefits: Fellows will have Adjunct Clinical Post Doctorate appointments at the University of Florida and commensurate salary.

--Internal Medicine or Family Medicine, Board-eligible or Board-certified
--Proficiency in French or Haitian Creole preferred

Vince, this sounds like a wonderful opportunity. Any idea if there's something similar in the pipeline for nurses interested in a Global Health Fellowship? There is a dearth of opportunities like this for nurses, despite of their wealth of relevant experience and interest. Thanks so much for considering. -Maggie Sullivan, RN, MS, FNP-BC
