HEAL Initiative -- UCSF's Innovative Interprofessional Global Health Fellowship

By Phuoc Le | 09 Sep, 2015

Dear Colleagues,

UCSF is excited to accept applications to the HEAL Initiative (www.healinitiative.org), an innovative two-year post-residency global health fellowship dedicated to equipping physicians with the knowledge and expertise needed to effectively serve in resource limited settings, both internationally and in the U.S.

With our many years of experience working in resource limited settings, we built the HEAL Initiative with three core commitments:

1) To support local health professional capacity.
2) To equip American health professionals with a deep understanding of the local context as well as the clinical and non-clinical skills to truly improve care.
3) To facilitate relationships between individuals and health care organizations that are reciprocal, long-term and equitable.
 
Through the HEAL Initiative, we are linking together health professionals dedicated to serving their community and to learning from others like them all around the world. This year’s cohort of 22 fellows are working in underserved sites in the U.S. such as Navajo Nation and international sites such as Haiti, India, Liberia, Malawi, Mexico, and Nepal. In addition to an online Master of Public Health (MPH) degree, our fellows will come away with a set of robust and versatile skills essential to improving the delivery of health care around the world.
 
Our goal is to provide the next generation of global health physicians with the training program we wish we ourselves had gone through. We are looking to spread the word of our fellowship and to invite final year residents passionate about health equity to apply for our program beginning in July 2016.

Please let us know if there is sometime this fall, when we could arrange to come and talk to your trainees about what the HEAL Initiative has to offer. Please contact to schedule a visit.
