Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellowship

Application Cycle: August 26 – October 26, 2019

The Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellowship awards 4 (four) AMWA medical student members with a two year fellowship focused on global health. The Carter Fellowship is both dynamic and multidisciplinary. The first year of the fellowship focuses on a global health curriculum, mentorship, and helping the fellow successfully planning the project. The second year of fellowship focuses on in-depth planning and preparation for a medical service-learning trip. The fellows selected for 2019 – 2021 will be the seventh cohort of fellows and will be expected to actively work with their predecessors, as well as assist the subsequent class in their transition, to provide good continuity within the Fellowship.

Each Fellow will have $1000 to fund her local project planning and to subsidize expenses for her international global health project. Fellows will not be required to travel abroad if medical school scheduling does not allow; however, all Fellows must plan a capstone project, even if the project addresses a more local global health issue. Throughout the two year tenure, Fellows will also serve as active members of the AMWA Global Health Committee.
