Global Health Corps Internship Program 2019
We are very pleased to inform interested persons that applications are now open for the Global Health Corps Internship Program 2019.Global Health Corps recruits and selects highly qualified applicants with diverse skill sets to work with high-impact organizations in year-long paid positions. During their fellowship year, fellows make a significant and measurable contribution to the placement organization and the target population.
Fellows work in teams of two at each placement organization – one national fellow and one international fellow. GHC fellows and alumni represent 40+ nationalities and have diverse backgrounds, experiences, skillsets, and passions. They are architects, designers, web developers, business analysts, teachers, communications specialists, supply chain managers, and more.
GHC recruits high-impact placement organizations in East Africa, Southern Africa, and the United States that are strengthening health systems and improving health outcomes in impoverished communities. Placement organizations range from local grassroots organizations to government agencies to global institutions. GHC partners identify areas of demand within the organization where our fellows can further develop their diverse skill set and inevitably add significant value. Learn more about our partners.
GHC supports and challenges fellows throughout their fellowship. The training curriculum integrates leadership and professional development with self-reflection and personal learning. GHC focuses on building skills that are essential for effective and ethical leadership, such as human-centered design thinking, storytelling, systems thinking and strategic planning for social change. Importantly, they engage their fellows as collaborative partners in designing and facilitating our training program.
Fellows build a set of shared values, commitment and skills that they carry well beyond the fellowship year. The GHC community serves as a source of opportunity and strength throughout fellows’ lives and careers, and GHC alumni continue to pursue global health and social justice impact through diverse paths after their fellowship year. Alumni have a heightened impact throughout their lives, strengthened by both their fellowship experience and, most importantly, the community they have formed with other fellows and alumni.
