Introduction to the Global Health Corps Paid Fellowship

Applications are now open for the Global Health Corps Paid Fellowship 2024-2025. We believe that everyone has a role to play in the health equity movement. Are you in? Then you should send in your application for the new fellowship class.

Global Health Corps is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering and building the next generation of inclusive and diverse health leaders. Our mission is to provide a range of paid fellowship positions with health organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia to individuals who are passionate about the health equity movement and want to develop as transformative leaders in this field.

Our fellows work alongside local health organizations and communities to address critical health challenges and promote health equity. Through our fellowship program, we provide a unique opportunity for individuals to gain hands-on experience, develop leadership skills, and grow their network of like-minded individuals who are committed to creating a healthier and more equitable world. We believe that everyone has a role to play in the health equity movement, and we invite you to join us in this important work.

  • We are excited by a design-thinking approach to building a better world, creatively embracing wicked problems, and being ready to embrace failure as learning.
