During the optional second year, fellows will attend a two-month course for a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in either Peru or Uganda/Tanzania.

Research: Fellows will work on Project Medishare’s public health grants throughout the fellowship and are expected to present at a conference or publish by the end of the fellowship.
