Global Health Research Fellowship

Collage CGH Fellowship

Global health is a multidisciplinary field of service, research, and training that seeks to improve the health of individuals and populations to achieve worldwide health equity, especially for those in resource-poor settings. Over the past decade, there has been a heightened recognition of the need for generalist clinician-scientists in global health, reflecting the rise of non-communicable diseases in resource-limited settings and the importance of primary care for sustainable health improvements.

The mission of the Global Health Research Fellowship is to train physicians for academic careers in global health research. The three-year fellowship includes field-based research, courses in research methods, and teaching and clinical service at Weill Cornell NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The majority of the time over the three years is spent conducting mentored research at one of our international sites in Haiti, Tanzania, Brazil or India. Fellows return to New York periodically for short intensive courses in research methods and to attend at Weill Cornell New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Fellows receive intensive mentorship from faculty in New York and international Weill Cornell faculty throughout their training. Coursework may lead to a MSc in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research.

Applications for 2022 are now open.
