The Global Health Program (GHP) is central to the Division of Nutritional Sciences undergraduate major in Global and Public Health Sciences (GPHS) and university-wide minor in Global Health (GHM). All students in the GPHS and the GHM are required to engage in an approved and supervised experiential learning opportunity (ELO). This required component provides students with the unique opportunity to connect theory and practice, to learn in new contexts, to interact with individuals from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds, and an opportunity to use their knowledge and skills in an applied public health setting.
The GHP creates, manages, and facilitates innovative course-based and experiential learning opportunities for undergraduate students. The GHP directly administers and supports four global health summer programs (each program is 8-weeks long) through collaborative partnerships in Tanzania, Zambia, India and the Dominican Republic. Together, these programs create 40-45 experiential learning placements each year. As a part of effort to engage international collaborations, we bring visiting faculty and scholars to Cornell's Ithaca campus. This reciprocity creates opportunities for unique cross-cultural and multidisciplinary learning experiences for both undergraduate students and faculty. These GHP collaborative partnerships and summer programs are critical to meeting the growing demand among undergraduate students pursuing academic studies in global and public health.
The Global and Public Health Fellow provides critical programmatic and administrative support for the Global Health Program and its affiliated courses, international partnerships, student leadership and engagement opportunities and summer programs.
The Global Health Program Fellowship serves as a unique paid training opportunity for recent Cornell graduates minoring in Global Health (or in the future majoring in Global and Public Health Sciences) to attain full-time experience in the global health field in higher education. The fellow benefits from the opportunity to:
Expand on the knowledge secured from their global health undergraduate education in the academic spheres of undergraduate advising, curriculum development and programmatic support,
Learn more about and explore the opportunities for employment or graduate education in the global health field;
Receive extensive mentoring by program directors and faculty participating in teaching in the Summer Programs;
Further develop professional transferrable skills (i.e. oral/written communication, presentation, global program/partnership development, etc.) that prepare the fellow to step into a job with an NGO/Non-profit/Government agency related to global health or development.
This is a one-year appointment that may be extended for up to an additional twelve months depending on Program needs.
Bachelor's Degree required. The Global and Public Health Fellowship is a highly selective appointment. Appointment offers are only made to students who have a demonstrated history of engagement with the Global Health Program, including one or more of the following pre-requisites:
Successful completion of Cornell Global Health Summer Program (DR, India, Tanzania or Zambia);
Prior appointment as a Program and/or Teaching Assistant for one or more Global Health courses or summer programs or record of active membership in the Global Health Student Advisory Board; and
Successful completion of the Minor in Global Health.
