Global Pediatrics Program
Global Pediatric Fellowship In Health Service Delivery
The Global Pediatrics Program offers a post-graduate fellowship program in global health, in collaboration with Partners In Health. Fellows combine work at PIH and Ministry of Health Hospitals in Haiti and Rwanda with clinical and course work in Boston. While abroad, fellows work with Rwandan and Haitian colleagues to improve the quality of pediatric services. Fellows share their clinical experience through bedside and didactic teaching, and work with local staff to implement specific programs and projects. Over the last year, areas of focus for the fellows have included pediatric HIV, prevention of vertical HIV transmission, neonatology, oncology, and care of children with chronic and non-communicable disease.
This focus on global health service delivery provides critical support to our partner sites in Haiti and Rwanda, and provides fellows with an opportunity to develop skills and experience in clinical care in low resource settings, in medical education, and in program design, management, and evaluation.
