Deadline: February 26, 2018
Applications are invited for the Stanford Global Health & Media Fellowship Program 2018/19. Stanford University’s Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) launched the first U.S. Fellowship in Media and Global Health to demonstrate how multiple media platforms can have significant impact on global health work. Fellows are competitively chosen from a national pool of physicians-in-training and physicians committed to a career in global health.
This opportunity is targeted to provide medical students, residents or fellows with 12-months of practical training in global health reporting using a variety of media platforms including print, online, broadcast, social and digital media while learning the fundamentals of journalism and communications. The Fellow learns how multiple media modalities can play a significant role in health and human rights efforts, foundation and government health assistance, and individual health choices.
Upon completion of the fellowship, the Fellow will be required to produce a publication on an in-depth topic of choice in global health. The Fellow will return to medical training with the expectation that in addition to treating patients, conducting research or teaching, s/he will also become an advocate and spokesperson for global health issues.
Throughout the fellowship, the Fellow will be mentored by: Michele Barry, MD, Senior Associate Dean for Global Health at the Stanford School of Medicine and Director of the Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health; Nancy Snyderman, MD, FACP, former chief medical editor for NBC News and Consulting Professor of Global Health at the Stanford School of Medicine; James T. Hamilton, Hearst Professor of Communication and Director of the Stanford Journalism Program; Paul Costello, Chief of Communication and Public Affairs for Stanford Medicine.
- Open to physicians-in-training and physicians committed to a career in global health who are based in the US.
