Global Health Pediatric Fellowship PIH/Laos Friends/HRH at Harvard University(5 Locations)

The Global Pediatric Fellowship Program at Boston Children’s Hospital aims to train

future leaders in global child health as well as support the development of essential

child health services in regions of the world with greatest need and limited access to

health providers. Our goal is to train a cadre of pediatricians who have the skills and

long term commitment necessary to make an impact in improving child health in

some of the neediest global settings.

The focus of the fellowship is on skills in global health service delivery, including skills

in clinical care, medical education, program development, management, evaluation,

quality improvement, and in implementation focused research.

During their field placement, fellows will work in collaboration with Partners In Health

in Haiti and Rwanda or Laos Friends Hospital for Children to support pediatric medical

education, strengthen existing child health programs, and expand access to pediatric

health care.

During their clinical placement in Boston, fellows will combine clinical work in general

pediatrics with an extensive global health curriculum aimed at strengthening their

core clinical, public health, quality improvement, and teaching skills relevant to global

health. Fellows will receive a clinical appointment, salary and full employee benefits

package at BCH. Fellows will also be recommended for an academic appointment at

Harvard Medical School as a Clinical Fellow.

Formal course work is an important part of fellowship. Opportunities for accepted

and qualifying fellows to pursue, may include a Master’s in Public Health from Harvard

T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness

(HSPH), Global Health Delivery Intensive (HSPH), and the Gorgas Diploma in Tropical

Medicine Course. Opportunities and funding support vary by year. Additional details

will be provided during interviews.
