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 either Bernard Mevs Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; the University of Ghana Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana; or at Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences’ Teaching Hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Fellows have the opportunity to 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.
