Global Health Corps is a community of emerging leaders who believe that great ideas don’t change the world, great PEOPLE do! We provide opportunities for talented young professionals from diverse sectors and backgrounds to work in leading health-focused organizations in year-long, paid fellowship positions.

Applicants apply to a specific position within a specific organization and in a specific country, just like applying for a job.

WHAT HAVE FELLOWS SAID ABOUT THEIR GHC EXPERIENCE?

For me, GHC represents the birth of a global health career. It's such a unique fellowship because of how intentional and organized they are in matching the needs of global health organizations with the skills and passions of their fellows. I was looking for an opportunity to apply my work experience and education in an organization whose mission and vision aligned with my own. GHC provided that opportunity and so much more. - Bryan, 2011-2012 fellow


The GHC Fellowship was an awesome transformative experience and an enormous determinant in both the direction and quality of my career.  – DezioMacheso, 2011-2012 fellow

Global Health Corps allowed us, two people from different backgrounds and opposite sides of the world, to put our minds together to think about global health issues in a new way. We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be inspired by this diverse community, to use our professional skills in ways that we never thought we could, and to have been provided with a doorway to the health equity movement.– Serena and Jonathan, 2012-2013fellows
