I. Weill Cornell Medical College's Global Health Curriculum is pleased to announce the opening of a one-year Global Health Fellowship.


During this one-year position, the Global Health Fellow leads the daily direction of the Global Health Curriculum and oversees the program’s development. The Global Health Curriculum at Weill Cornell Medical College was designed to prepare our medical students to be future leaders in global health through a longitudinal program featuring didactic course work, experiential learning, and a mentored pathway for engaging with resource‐poor communities, internationally and domestically. The Curriculum is governed by a Steering Committee comprised of students, medical residents, and faculty from various divisions (e.g., The Office of Global Health Education, The Center for Global Health, and The Global Emergency Medicine Program at New York-Presbyterian Emergency Medicine Residency).
