Global Health-Hospital Medicine Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The goal of the 2-year UCSF Global Health-Hospital Medicine Fellowship (GHHMF) is to train the next generation of hospitalists who are leaders in the areas of quality improvement and patient safety, medical education, and health systems strengthening, in resource limited settings. The UCSF GHHMF is ideal for graduating residents or early career hospitalists who anticipate careers in global health and hospital medicine as clinician-educators in a teaching hospital setting.

The GHHMF will provide fellows with training in teaching skills, quality improvement, and leadership through a structured curriculum tailored to suit individual interests. GHHMF Fellows will participate in a series of core curricular blocks (see schematic below) and elective activities both within and outside the Division of Hospital Medicine. All fellows will also attend scheduled Fellows' Works-in-Progress sessions, weekly Division of Hospital Medicine meetings while in country, and regular mentoring meetings.

One key component of the training is the pre-departure Global Health Bootcamp which will provide fellows with the proper training and preparation to implement global health delivery in a thoughtful and impactful manner.
