Global Women’s Health Fellowship
This two-year fellowship is an inter-disciplinary and cross-collaborative program developed by the Division of Women’s Health in collaboration with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and the BWH Department of Emergency Medicine to promote educational initiatives and research pertinent to global women’s health, domestically and internationally, through development of academic, clinical and administrative skills in global medicine, disaster and humanitarian response, war medicine, and areas specific to women’s health including reproductive health and gender-based violence. The curriculum is tailored to each fellow’s individual interests and is divided into six areas: (1) advancing clinical skills in a Harvard-affiliated teaching institution; (2) completion of a Masters in Public Health at the Harvard School of Public Health; (3) developing a concentration in a specific area of global women’s health; (4) undertaking global health field work; (5) successfully completing research projects with associated publications; and (6) mentorship by Harvard faculty. Fellows also participate in the Humanitarian Studies Course, including the Humanitarian Studies Initiative for Residents, offered through the Harvard School of Public Health and coordinated by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, which includes a two-week intensive course on humanitarian issues and a weekend long field simulation exercise. Applications are accepted from a variety of specialties, including internal medicine, emergency medicine, OB/GYN, infectious disease, and med/peds. Strong connections are maintained between the Fellowship Program and the Division of Global Health Equity at BWH, the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, faculty at the Harvard School of Public Health, and the Harvard Initiative for Global Health.
