The Johns Hopkins Global Women’s Health Fellowship Program integrates clinical care and training with research and global health program design and implementation. This integration is achieved through individual scholarship, group-based program implementation and direct mentorship.
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.
Over the course of the two year program, fellows will participate in clinical conferences, journal club and didactic activities to address core competencies. The physician fellow will have clinical rotations at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital. The advanced practice nurse and physician fellow will work together to develop and implement a research project in a focus country.
