East of England (EoE) Global Health Fellowships provide the opportunity for senior trainees in an East of England Training Programme to develop greater understanding and participate in global health activities. The Fellowship opportunity is open to:

  • Doctors in training (ST3+) – all specialties
  • Nurses and Midwives doing preceptorship
  • AHPs in final year of training

Applications typically open in the first quarter of the year, with interviews in early Summer and Fellowships starting between August and October.

The Fellowships are a wonderful opportunity to:

  • Have funded time (up to one session per week) to dedicate to global health activities.
  • Gain understanding of global healthcare and skills in team working, leadership and management and governance, alongside your speciality knowledge and skills.
  • Experience partnership working with healthcare professionals in Low- and Middle-Income countries through an existing CGHP partnership or another defined partnership.
  • Be offered development against a number of specialty specific curriculum competencies.
  • Undertake an overseas partnership visit, depending on international travel restrictions.
  • Have the opportunity to study for a Global Health / International Health qualification (partial funding available, subject to approval)
  • Become a champion for global health within your specialty and the region.
  • Become part of a support network for international medical graduates training in the region with involvement in induction and mentorship.
  • ‘The Global Health Fellowship is a unique opportunity to get connected to like minded people within the deanery, the Cambridge Global Health Partnerships and carry out a project in relation to your specialty. Having nurtured an interest in Global Maternal Health for many years, and undertaken various global health projects, the fellowship offered a convenient and exciting opportunity to carry this out alongside my speciality training program. Since starting the program I have been connected with an academic in Maternal and Fetal Medicine who has an interest and connections with research ongoing in the Global South. I have collaborated with some of this ongoing work to write up and analyse data on maternal mortality for a paper we hope to publish. It will be a great achievement collectively and personally to have this work published, which we hope will improve the care that can be provided to women in similar circumstances both at the study centre and beyond. I hope that this fellowship program can continue long in to the future, so that other trainees can similarly benefit from it, and collectively we can raise the profile of Global Health within our deanery and speciality.’
