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 pairs 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.
