Global & Rural Health Fellowship

Global & Rural Health Fellowship

Our mission is to train the next generation of leaders in medical fields to bring dignified, justice-oriented, and sustainable improvements to the healthcare of vulnerable populations within global and local communities.

Realizing that the fields of both global and rural health are complex and embedded in structures of healthcare inequalities which have the ability to be changed, the UWGRF is committed to improving the health care systems that affect the most vulnerable populations. This fellowship will train its fellows to address the most pressing issues facing global and rural health today including health systems strengthening, implementation and clinical research, improving medical education, treating the expanding fields of chronic diseases, cancer, trauma, mental health, and primary care in a culturally appropriate and dignified manner.

The UWGRF in Internal Medicine is a two year program based in a structured curriculum containing clinical and research training in global health, clinical training with Native populations in Alaska and South Dakota, education, mentorship, and teaching opportunities. During the first year of the program, fellows will provide direct clinical care either at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, AK or with Indian Health Services on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Fellows may also be able to participate in health systems strengthening projects at their respective sites and may have the opportunity to supervise visiting medical students and residents at each clinical site.
