The Peace Corps and Seed Global Health have launched the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) to strengthen health care workforce capacity in resource-limited countries so that better health care is available worldwide. The Partnership collaborates with local teaching institutions educating future nurses and physicians and collaborating with fellow faculty.
Clinical faculty is severely lacking in many medical and nursing schools in sub-Saharan Africa. GHSP helps fill this critical gap placing physicians and nurses to serve as faculty at schools in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. To find out more about the GHSP Nursing Education position in the link below.
GHSP participants in this one year placement are Peace Corps Response volunteers and as such receive monthly living stipends, transportation to and from their country of service, comprehensive medical care, vacation days, malpractice coverage and a readjustment allowance. In addition, loan and debt repayment of up to $30,000, Seed Global Health reduces the barriers for the highest-qualified candidates to volunteer in the GHSP program.
Applications to deploy in July 2014 are due November 1, 2013.
