Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP)
Hopkins-affiliated global health programs have prepared placements for students in their low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) programs. This is a great opportunity for students to gain international experience!
We will only be offering the GHEFP opportunity to graduate students for the 2023 cycle.
Placements vary in length, with a minimum of 8 weeks.
Selected students will be awarded a grant of $3,500 from the CGH to defray travel and subsistence costs.
Awardees will be required to assist at the overseas site for the agreed time period. The placement site will not be required to pay the student or contribute financially, though some sites will choose to do so. The placement site and JHU faculty will be required to provide supervision of the student and offer assistance in locating suitable housing and general advice about living in-country.
GHEFP is open to all full-time graduate students of the Johns Hopkins University who can work with their placement for a minimum of 8 weeks and will return to complete their academic programs. Additional limitations may apply and are provided in the descriptions.
- Students who complete their studies prior to the projected travel date are not eligible to apply.
- MPH students and Masters of Entry into Nursing (MEN) students are not eligible unless they are in dual degree programs and can meet all other eligibility requirements.
- First-year medical students (MS1s) are not eligible.
- Medical residents and fellows should apply to the Paul S. Lietman Travel Grant for Housestaff
The application period is now open. Applications are due February 12, 2023.
Returning students are expected to complete all reporting requirements no later than 1 month after returning from your placement, with the expectation of your participation in Global Health Day 2023 (date TBD).
