Medical Student Division

Anne C. Carter Global Health Fellowship

Application Cycle: August 1 – October 30, 2018

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 focuses on a global health curriculum, local project development, and mentorship. The second year focuses on in-depth planning and preparation for a medical service-learning trip to Engeye Clinic in Uganda. The Carter Fellowship culminates in a capstone global health project in Engeye. The fellows selected for 2016 – 2018 will be the fifth 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 and trip to Uganda. 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.
