GHC’s U.S. Fellowship is an exciting 12-month opportunity to build skills as an effective leader, but it’s also much more than that. It’s a year that will catalyze your personal and professional growth, placing you within a global and diverse network of bright, young, and committed health equity champions. It is – we hope – a catalyst for an impactful career working towards equitable health systems.
