Boston Children’s Hospital Postgraduate Global Pediatric Fellowship in Health Service Delivery
The Global Pediatrics Program offers a postgraduate fellowship program in global health, in collaboration with Partners in Health. Fellows combine work in Laos, Haiti or Rwanda with clinical service and course work in Boston. While abroad, fellows work with local 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. Areas of focus for the fellows’ have included prevention of maternal-to-child transmission of HIV, 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.
