CFHI offers intensive and immersive global health experiences. They are often referred to as global health internships, clinical electives, away rotations, or externships. They are open to all with an interest in global health.

CFHI Programs provide first-hand experiences alongside local physicians and public health experts in Latin America, Africa, and India. CFHI scholars are connected with clinical sites and public health organizations to learn how experts in resource-poor settings address healthcare challenges and innovate solutions. CFHI programs support underserved communities abroad and provide professional development for those interested in health or global health careers.

CFHI offers both 4-16 week or 2-week experiences. 4-16 week “Global Health Education Programs,” found below provide an in-depth, immersive experience spanning several clinical and/or public health sites and can be extended or combined to provide a comprehensive multi-geographic understanding of global health. 4-16 week CFHI Global Health Education Programs run year-round.

CFHI’s 2-week “Global Health Intensive Programs” provide a shorter, survey experience at select sites for those whose schedule does not allow for a more traditional CFHI program. For more on 2-week experiences, see our Global Health Intensives page.
