Johns Hopkins Global Women’s Health Fellowship now accepting applications
The Johns Hopkins Global Women’s Health Fellowship Program is a two-year postgraduate training program addressing critical women’s health issues and sustainable health solutions in low and middle income countries. A partnership between the Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and Jhpiego, the Johns Hopkins global health affiliate, this interdisciplinary fellowship will uniquely pair an Ob/Gyn physician with an advanced practice nurse for collaborative inter-professional learning and research.
This program has a forward-thinking approach to global health that promotes learning and skill development through program implementation and evaluation to address a defined global health need and to enact sustainable improvements in women’s health care. Our goal is to prepare qualified Ob/Gyns and nurses for leadership positions in global women’s health in order to improve care, education and research for women and their families in the developing world. Thank you for your interest in our program. Applications are now being accepted for fellowship beginning July 2018.
Fellows will achieve the following objectives during the two-year program:
- Develop knowledge, skills and attitudes essential to provision of complex clinical care that addresses disparities in health care access and outcomes with women living in lower resource settings.
- Gain experience in women’s health program design, implementation and evaluation, including an understanding of funding avenues, partnership, capacity building, quality improvement and sustainability.
- Build cultural and ethical competency in women’s health practice, education and research.
- Develop knowledge and experience in diverse research designs and methods applicable to programs to address the needs of women in lower resource settings, with a focus on implementation science.
- Provide opportunities for networking, partnerships and bidirectional collaborations in teaching, practice and research with women’s health faculty members, program implementers, trainees and policy makers from sites in one or more developing countries.
- Develop multidisciplinary and inter-professional collaborations to advance women’s health care, education and research.
