Global Health Fellowships

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 2025 Fellowship opportunity is open now to doctors in training of ST3 or above in all specialties.*

Global Health Fellowships are offered for one year during which you’ll be expected to work within an established health partnership. The specific work undertaken will depend on your interests and the agreement of your supervisor, but may involve teaching, audit, guideline development and research.  Fellowships start between August and October and run through until August the following year.

The application deadline is Wednesday 12 June at 5pm.

*We expect to open Fellowship applications for Nurses, Midwives and AHPs later in June.

How to apply

Fellowships offer a unique chance 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.

  • ‘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.’
