Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholars Program
Deadline for Program Year 2013-2014 Applications:
Friday, December 7, 2012
Physicians-in-training who will have completed at least their internship year of residency training in accredited US programs in Internal Medicine, Primary Care, Family Medicine, Med/Peds, or Emergency Medicine by July 2013 are eligible to apply for the 2013-2014 program year. Those trained in Pediatrics and Preventive Medicine are eligible to apply for select sites only. Applicants from US academic medical centers and community-based practices who are board-certified in any specialty are welcome to apply as Career Physicians. Chief Residents and Fellows should apply as Career Physicians.
Please note: It is recommended that all Yale/Stanford/Johnson and Johnson Global Health Scholars be covered by malpractice insurance during their International Health Rotation. The Program does not provide this coverage. All participants are responsible for providing their own malpractice insurance and are encouraged to inquire of their home institutions about the status of their current coverage when practicing medicine abroad. Both Yale and Stanford extend their residents' coverage during approved IHE rotations.
Applications and supporting letters for participation must be received by December 7, 2012. All applicants will be notified by the beginning of February, 2013. The rotation will take place between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014. The award must be used during this time frame and may not be postponed except under highly unusual circumstances.
Both the Resident and Career Physician applications are available for download in Microsoft Word format to be completed and printed. In addition to the application, both Residents and Career Physicians are asked to submit their CVs as well as two letters of recommendations, one of which must be from his or her program director if the applicant is a resident or fellow. All letters of recommendation must be enclosed with the application and mailed. We also ask for a copy of a passport-type photograph.
Please mail all components of the application (form, CV, two letters of reference,photo) in ONE packet to:

Site Selection & Assignment
Please note that these rotations require a commitment of six weeks, which does include travel time to and from the US. We will make site and date assignments based on the information in the application and on the needs of our sites. Please plan on scheduling vacation before or after your rotation, not during.
The following Microsoft Word files include all instructions and can be downloaded to your computer, completed, printed and mailed.
Selection is based upon site availability, dates which residents and senior physicians are available for rotations, and desired experiences. Previous international health experience is not a criterion for participation at the resident or the Career Physician level.
