Leadership in Global Health Fellowship
Emerging pandemic infections, the dramatic rise in non-communicable diseases, planetary health, and other issues will be at the forefront of complex global health challenges in the next decade. To meet these challenges, YIGH aims to contribute to the development of future global health leadership by training aspiring young professionals who have a wide-ranging passion for and understanding of the critical importance of good health for a just and equitable society. The Leadership in Global Health Fellowship prepares the future generation of global health professionals through a comprehensive program that includes placement in a high-impact internship. The program is a partnership between the Yale Institute for Global Health, the Global Health Studies Program at the Jackson School for International Affairs, and the Yale School of Public Health Office of Career Services.
