Medical Students - 3rd/4th+ year

CFHI programs are ideal clinical and public health rotations that can fit into your elective time during third or fourth year.  Our programs run 12 months a year, so you can find the time that is right for you. With so many programs, you will find a program that focuses on the field you want to enter, or in a geographic area that intrigues you. Whether you are already committed to having a career in global health or curious about considering it, CFHI programs will exceed your expectations. Many CFHI alumni go on to be leaders in global health, within academia, the NGO sector, or on an advocacy level. Consider scheduling a CFHI elective.
