***Call for Applications***
Are you looking for global health experience next year?
Are you curious about how public health works in the field?
Would you be interested in investigating hospital-acquired infections in Egypt?
Or investigating emerging infectious diseases in Kenya?
What about a molecular epidemiological study of Chagas disease in Peru?
Or perhaps you would like to be at the forefront of influenza surveillance?
Do you want an experience that offers an opportunity to enhance your research skills and improve your clinical acumen via a global health perspective, all by working on real-life problems in an international setting?
Then consider applying to the CDC-Hubert Global Health Fellowship!
The CDC-Hubert Global Health Fellowship, endowed by the O.C. Hubert Charitable Trust, is designed to encourage students to think of public health in a global context. The fellowship provides an opportunity for third- and fourth-year medical and veterinary students to gain population health experience in an international setting. Hubert fellows receive a stipend and spend six to twelve weeks in a developing country working on a priority health problem in conjunction with CDC staff. Through these experiences, students establish relationships with, and receive training from, recognized experts from CDC and other national and international health agencies.
Applicants must be US Citizens or permanent residents, attend an LCME- or AOA-accredited medical school, be in their 2nd or 3rd year when they apply to participate during their 3rd or 4th year, and be available for at least 6 weeks.
