International Health Fellowship

The International Health Fellowship was established by the Feinberg School of Medicine to provide support to medical students who wish to conduct international research projects. Each year one to two Feinberg medical students will be awarded stipends to support their investigation of medical issues, public health systems and health policy, and/or health care delivery methods at an international site. The goal of the program is to gain a deeper understanding of how cultural and economic factors influence health care systems and promote scholarship among medical students in the field of global health.  While the Global Health Initiative supports medical student research especially via the Area of Scholarly Concentration program, these funds are generally limited to research in low and middle-income settings.  The International Health Fellowship is a unique funding opportunity for FSM students in that it has no geographical or institutional restrictions once a research proposal is accepted.
