We are currently accepting applications for the Global Pediatric Fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital, for July 2016 entry. This is a two year training program, in which Fellows rotate in 6 month blocks between a field placement in Haiti, Rwanda, or Liberia, and a clinical placement in Boston, Massachusetts. The focus of the fellowship is on skills in global health service delivery, including skills in clinical care, medical education, program development, management, evaluation, quality improvement, and in implementation focused research.
During their field placement, fellows will work in collaboration with Partners In Health (Haiti/Rwanda), ACCEL Liberia, or at other affiliated partner sites supporting pediatric medical education which provides pediatric residency training to local clinicians, strengthen existing child health programs, and expand access to pediatric health care. During their clinical placement in Boston, fellows will combine clinical work in general pediatrics with an extensive global health curriculum aimed at strengthening their core clinical, public health, quality improvement, and teaching skills relevant to global health. Fellows attend the Global Health Delivery Summer Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in addition to courses in clinical skills, ultrasound, research, and QI.
Entry Requirements: Applicants must be Board-certified or Board-eligible in Pediatrics or Medicine-Pediatrics. International Medical Graduates must have completed USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3.
Interviews: A select number of candidates will be invited to Boston for interviews. This year's interview days are October 5th and October 26th.

Please apply early.
