Global Health-Hospital Medicine Fellowship – Non ACGME


The University of Florida and Innovating Health International have begun recruitment for the 2017-2018 class of the Global Health-Hospital Medicine Fellowship. Innovating Health International is a medical service delivery and public health non-profit organization in Haiti. We are looking for internal or family medicine doctors interested in spending 1-2 years learning the skills for a career in global health and hospital medicine.

Clinical Work

  • The fellowship will be one or two years in duration, depending on the interests of the fellow, with the fellows spending 6 to 8 months of each year as hospitalists in the growing and dynamic University of Florida Division of Hospital Medicine at UF Health. The 4 to 6 months will be spent in Haiti with Innovating Health International in Port-au-Prince and Cap Haitien.


  • Fellows will receive instruction through the Department of Epidemiology and complete a Global Health Certificate by the end of two years. During the optional second year, fellows can attend a two-month course for a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in either Peru or Uganda/Tanzania.


  •  Fellows will work on Innovating Health International’s public health and research projects throughout the fellowship and are expected to present at a conference or publish a paper by the end.


  • The fellows will serve as faculty for US residents and Haitian generalist doctors when they are in Haiti, and they will have teaching opportunities while at UF Health as well.


  • Fellows will have Adjunct Clinical Post Doctorate appointments at the University of Florida and a commensurate salary which is significantly higher than most fellowship positions.


  • Internal Medicine or Family Medicine, Board-eligible or Board-certified in the United States
  • Proficiency in French or Haitian Creole suggested but not required
  • Prior global health experience preferred
  • Adaptable, flexible, and good communicator
  • Willingness to live in Haiti 4 to 6 months of the year
