Capacity Building Fellowships

Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship, Children’s Hospital Boston & Partners In Health

The primary goal of the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship is to address the role of surgical care in population-based health care in resource-poor settings throughout the world. Surgeons associated with Harvard Teaching Hospitals, in conjunction with Partners In Health, have addressed this need for a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare by launching a Fellowship program that combines surgical training with the advanced study of global public health. Through the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship, dedicated surgeons are able to obtain the medical and non-medical skills they need to improve the health of some of the world's most impoverished people. The Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship is a one or two year program that is designed for medical professionals who have either already completed their surgical residency or are taking a scheduled break to conduct research.
