Global Health Corps

Since 2009, Global Health Corps (GHC) has built a network of 1150+ next gen leaders committed to transforming health systems. Through a robust fellowship and alumni program, GHC seeds the health sector with innovative and resilient young leaders and invests in them to grow and drive systems change across their careers. GHC serves as a critical talent pipeline for its partners, an entry point to global health for non-clinical leaders who join as fellows, and a leadership accelerator for alumni and their networks. GHC leaders are concentrated in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and the U.S., but the network has a truly global reach across 40+ countries and 450+ health organizations.

At a time of organizational growth and experimentation, GHC is developing a new vision for its US-based programming. The United States Senior Program Manager (USPM) will play a critical role in contributing to the design and implementation of a re-imagined leadership development program for emerging health leaders in the United States. Reporting to the Chief Program Officer (CPO), this hire will bring energy for building something new, agility in moving between strategy and implementation, and the ability to cultivate connections and support the professional development of BIPOC and other historically underrepresented talent in health leadership roles.

    • Oversee the development and continual refinement of systems and processes to recruit, select, and support fellows, with an eye on laying the foundation for scaling the program over time. 
    • Oversee fellow recruitment and selection process through developing strategies for outreach, creating promotional materials, managing the application database (Wizehive) and application vetting process, as well as ensuring data integrity and smooth user experience. Design recruitment strategies to engage historically underrepresented groups in health leadership roles. 
    • Build relationships with fellows, conduct regular check-ins to understand their professional needs, solicit their feedback, and provide ongoing coaching and support. 
    • In collaboration with the Director of Fellowships and other content developers, design and facilitate in-person and virtual events to foster community building and leadership development amongst the entire fellow class. 
    • Support networking and engagement of US public health organizations as recruitment and training partners. 
    • Support the work of the Director of Alumni and US Community Impact Senior Coordinator to build-out alumni programming, networking opportunities, and ongoing professional development. 
    • Support the work of the Impact and Learning Manager to implement a robust monitoring and evaluation framework. 
    • Collaborate with GHC's global team to share best practices and resources and regularly communicate updates about the US program. 
    • Support the development and communications teams to develop collateral for external stakeholders and to engage with key donors and strategic partners
    • Oversee the development and allocation of the US program budget.
