GHC is seeking an action-oriented, adaptive global leader who is excited about accelerating the learning and professional growth of our community members. The past ten years have been full of rapid growth for GHC and our alumni are critical to our mission of mobilizing a community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. With almost 1000 global health leaders in the GHC network, we are in need of a passionate team member who can connect our alumni with the resources and opportunities to advance their leadership and professional growth in order to improve the health of those most in need, both in their own countries and beyond.

Global Health Corps:
Global Health Corps (GHC) is building a new generation of global health leadership. We believe that solving the world’s most pressing global health challenges requires better and more connected leaders who are able to work across traditional boundaries like geography, sector, and issue area to engineer stronger global health systems. We need more than clinicians and providers; we need management consultants, engineers, artists, and architects. We need new leadership voices and new perspectives, especially those representing the populations most often left out and unheard.
GHC competitively recruits and selects emerging leaders from around the world who represent a wide range of skillsets and areas of expertise, all of which are critical to rebuilding and strengthening health systems. GHC is developing a cadre of health equity leaders through a unique leadership development program that utilizes experiential and formal learning methods.
Through a one-year fellowship program, fellows address a wide-range of health issues with high-impact grassroots organizations, NGOs, and ministries of health in Rwanda, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and the United States. Fellowship positions are demand-driven, ensuring that our fellows fill real-time health systems gaps and serve to amplify the great work already in progress. Placement organizations benefit from the skills and energy of fellows, as well as the support of GHC. We are building a network of young changemakers who share the common belief that health is a human right.
