Become a GPSA for Health Medical Fellow!

GPSA (Global Public Service Academies) for Health is currently accepting applications for its Medical Fellows Program. www.gpsa.org/

For those intending to take a gap year before returning to medical school or graduate school with an intense interest in medical practice in resource-poor settings, this program includes 15 months living and working on public health and clinical care in rural Guatemala and Belize. Following their stay in Central America, participants may choose to return home (to the US) and direct and train others who are planning and preparing for their own time in Guatemala and Belize. Medical Fellows are expected to lead groups of high school students for multiple periods during their experience.

A great opportunity for those wishing to pursue a medical career with a passion for global health, where you'll gain first-hand experience with healthcare in a poor, rural setting. Being a GPSA Medical Fellow will strengthen your resume indicating your passion for your chosen career. You'll also get intensive Spanish language training in a full-immersion program, including a Spanish-speaking homestay.

To apply, send a resume to Dr. Robert Malkin: robert.malkin@duke.edu
