In early 2020, the Yale Institute for Global Health will select up to six Yale students and trainees from across campus to participate in the Leadership in Global Health Fellowship program. Through the spring, Fellows will contribute to the development and implementation of YIGH programs and participate in an in-depth seminar focused on advanced global health competencies and organizational theory. The curriculum will be centered on a relational framework of leadership, understanding it as a dynamic role within an organization. Fellows will discuss the relationship between leaders and followers, how to work across groups and hierarchy, and how to resolve conflict in organizations to build global partnerships founded on shared goals for quality health care and population health outcomes. The curriculum will also include input from selected placement organizations to ensure that Fellows are prepared for their summer internships. Prior to their departure, Fellows will participate in training through the newly-launched Global Health Ethics Program. The fellowship experience culminates in a high- impact internship. Potential placements include: ministries of health, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, UNICEF, and other organizations.
The application for the program will include a goals statement describing how participation in the program will contribute to the applicant’s short- and long-term professional goals in global health. Applications for the program will open on Monday, February 3, 2020. The deadline for submissions is Monday, February 17, 2020. See attached flyer for details.
