Global Health Fellows
The Global Health Fellows program brings together students from across Dartmouth in an ongoing exploration of global health issues.
Global Health Fellows build their skills and knowledge through a year-long series of workshops, dinner discussions, career development sessions, and peer exchanges. GH Fellows benefit from a peer network of support and access to a wide range of resources as they pursue field opportunities, independent research projects, and other endeavors in global health. Highlights from the inaugural year of the program included an epidemic modeling session in the Geographic Information Systems laboratory, a fireside chat with health leaders from the Arctic, a science and policy discussion on vaccine development, and a term-long series on the Zika virus.
The Fellows program is open to undergraduates, medical, MBA, and graduate students from all disciplinary backgrounds. Applicants must be in residence for the at least two terms of the academic year, including fall term, and be able to attend a fall retreat and ten sessions per year. Preference is given to students who have demonstrated interest in global health through academic coursework, co-curricular activities, and off term or work experiences. Participation in a Dickey Center-funded international internship is not a prerequisite for selection for the program.
The application for the 2016-17 Global Health Fellows Program is now closed. Please direct questions about the program to the Global Health Initiative.
