What is the Fellowship?

Welcome to your leadership journey. The GHC fellowship is an exciting opportunity to build skills and gain experience with a high-impact health organization, but it’s also much more than that.

It is – we hope – the beginning of the rest of your career working towards equitable health systems.

The fellowship starts with one week of inspiring sessions with thought leaders, bonding with your cohort, and reflections on your role as a next-gen global health leader. Trainings, coaching, and mentorship continue year-round!

Learn as You Go

You will adapt and innovate as you learn the needs of your placement organization, and work to add value and advance health equity. There will be highs and lows, and new learnings every day.
