The vision of the program is to develop global leaders who understand the foundations of health inequity and have the knowledge, skills, and courage to build more equitable organizations and communities.

Citizenship is not a requirement for this fellowship program, but all fellows need to be fluent in English. We will be selecting 10 U.S.-based and 10 international fellows. 

Fellows will meet in-person and online throughout the year. Attendance and participation in related activities for both in-person and online meetings are required for successful completion of the program.

There are 4 in-person meetings, called convenings, throughout the year that represent a total anticipated time commitment of 5 weeks.  Convenings are full time, out of office commitments. 

Online meetings take place every 2 weeks for 90 minutes. There is an additional time commitment of 12-16 hours per month for the online curriculum, but this is self-directed learning, i.e. completed at your own pace. Self-directed learning activities include completion of program readings, videos and assignments. Assignments may be related to your individual project, reflection, and/or program evaluation.  

Please note that all completed applications must be submitted by August 1, 2018
