Afya Bora Global Health Fellowships: The Afya Bora Consortium Fellowship was created to train future leaders in global health. The focus is on African health professionals, but also includes U.S. trainees.
The Fellowship has two major components, a set of didactic modules and an assignment at an Attachment Site.
The didactic modules provide trainees with basic knowledge and a variety of practical skills relevant to effective leadership, while the assignment at an Attachment Site provides practical experience in an African health organization and environment.
Global Health Fellowships - Trainees
The one-year training program targets African and U.S. medical post-graduates, post-residency physicians, and graduate nurses with the majority of trainees from Africa.
One important element of the program is the inclusion of both U.S. and African trainees who are both nurses and physicians.
We believe that this mix will enhance the quality of the leadership training experience for all participants, and will help the trainees establish professional relationships that will have long-term benefits in their future careers. The annual cohort is ~ 20 fellows per year (80% from African institutions).
