Medical Missionaries Global Health Fellowship




The Medical Missionaries Global Health Fellowship offers recent college graduates, graduate students, or professionals interested in global health the opportunity to gain experience in health care delivery in Haiti.  Fellows will spend one year in Thomassique, Haiti, working at St. Joseph’s Clinic, where they act as liaisons between Medical Missionaries—the US-based organization that built and provides funding for the Clinic—and the Clinic’s all-Haitian staff.  The Fellowship begins in June 2018 and ends in June 2019.

During their year in Haiti, Fellows serve as the prime contact between Medical Missionaries’ U.S. headquarters and St. Joseph Clinic in Thomassique. They will coordinate health and community projects involving Community Health Workers, traditional birth assistants, mobile clinics, water purification, malnutrition, salt iodization, and education. Fellows also work with community leaders to implement innovative health programs in Thomassique and six outlying villages. Moreover, Fellows also fulfill a variety of administrative roles such as monitoring medication usage, helping the Clinic to be well-organized, and coordinating the logistics for hosting visiting teams of U.S. physicians, dentists, and surgeons. In addition to these responsibilities, Fellows have the opportunity to shadow the Clinic’s physicians, midwives, and nurses; work in the Clinic’s laboratory and pharmacy; and assist visiting surgical and medical teams. All necessary training will be provided.

Fellows live with the Clinic staff in a residence hall adjacent to the Clinic. Living expenses are covered by Medical Missionaries, including a bedroom, meals,  Internet access, a washing machine, and potable water and emergency evacuation insurance. Medical Missionaries also pays for Fellowship-related transportation costs for the Fellows, including up to two return trips to the States for periods of two weeks. This arrangement is ideal for individuals who are applying to graduate schools, including medical school, during the year and need to return to the country for interviews. Fellows should be physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared to live in a rural, underdeveloped setting for an extended period of time. They can also expect to be the only foreigners in Thomassique for most of the year.

  • Completed applications must be submitted to Medical Missionaries online by October 10, 2017.
