Establish a GHEFP Site

Overview

The Center for Global Health (CGH) supports students in their efforts to gain experience working in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP) is a unique program in which students work on faculty projects to gain research or practice skills and experiences that help them become well-rounded global health professionals. 

At this time, the CGH is recruiting faculty and staff members interested in having a student work on their project(s) in the field for a minimum of 8 weeks

Students will apply for these placements and selections will be made by the CGH through a matching process taking into consideration both faculty and student preferences. Selected students will be awarded a grant of up to $3,500 from the CGH to defray travel costs. 

Please see the call for site applications here
