Country-based Virtual Global Health Internships & Practicum

CFHI, under the leadership of partners in 12 countries who are health and social system leaders on the ground, offers country-based Global Health internships and practicum.  CFHI Virtual Global Health Internships offer undergraduate, pre-health, and graduate-level participants the unique opportunity to explore global and public health issues broadly, highlighting how health systems around the world deliver healthcare in a variety of diverse environments, exploring cultural interplays in urban and rural areas, and incorporating indigenous healing practices. Students learn how communities are addressing their most pressing health challenges, including chronic disease, maternal-child health, infectious disease, and reproductive health, all while gaining insights into the public health realities of the region. The internship is enriched with cross-cultural assessment and interaction tools, and with carefully planned cultural activities that allow participants to experience the rich diversity of CFHI’s global partner communities.

The CFHI Virtual Global Health Practicums are structured, supervised, and evaluated professional experience for Graduate and Professional level students to apply their relevant skills, knowledge, and values in a real-world setting. The virtual practicum consists of 160-200 hours and must address at least three Global Health Education Competencies. CFHI identifies appropriate projects for applicants based on the needs and interests of our global partners. Of note, CFHI utilizes an Asset-Based Community Development approach, so all practicum projects are building on local strengths and prioritizing sustainability and contemporary international development principles. Trainees will also serve a project management role in order to ensure milestones and deliverables are met.
