Global Health Fellows Program

The Global Health Fellows Program prepares cohorts of Yale undergraduates with demonstrated interest and commitment to addressing pressing global health challenges for careers in global health. Global Health Fellows apply in the fall of their sophomore year to participate in the program throughout their junior and senior years. Applications will be accepted from juniors, although only a small number of junior applicants with strong applications will be selected for the program. Global Health Fellows complete an interdisciplinary course of study that includes required and elective courses, research, and practice addressing fundamental and applied economic, political, social, cultural, environmental, and biological issues relevant to global health.
