The global women’s health fellowship is to provides high quality patient care to women worldwide along with paradigm changing research programs and superior educational opportunities for health care providers in low resource settings. Our two-year fellowship focuses on conditions such as maternal mortality, obstetric fistula, preterm birth, neglected tropical diseases, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, malnutrition and others that impact the health and well-being of women worldwide. Fellows will spend about 80 percent of their time living and working in Malawi with supervision by Baylor College of Medicine faculty and other experts in global women’s health.
The first year of fellowship will include stateside training for fellows in research design and statistical analysis. This structure program, in combination with the availability of research mentors who have a proven record of collaboration with clinicians at Baylor, will allow fellows to develop research projects and gain the knowledge necessary to conduct research internationally.
Additionally, fellows will take an eight-week, intensive program at the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. Our school is the first in the United States committed solely to addressing the world’s most pressing tropical disease issues. Completion of this program will prepare fellows to sit for the CTropMed®-Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health.
