Program’s Mission: The J&J Global Health Program aims to build the capacity of health care at each of its established sites.  Our goal is to establish longstanding Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Health Overseas Partnerships in Education Centers (HOPE Centers) through focusing our scholars and resources at each of the sites. The program seeks to develop partnerships of patient-centered care and models of teaching in low resource settings.  

We will strengthen health care infrastructure and diagnostic skills at host settings, work to diminish “brain drain” from the developing world by building bilateral partnerships, and develop an effective response to the host country’s specific health care needs. The Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson HOPE Centers will be marked by resource support, enhanced clinical research, and medical education and exchange at each level of the continuing medical education process. 

Eligibility: Although Yale and Stanford residents are given preference for award eligibility we do offer a few funded awards to outstanding applications from other residency programs as well as to senior career physicians.*

Note: All scholars are required to attend the Pre-Departure Orientation, scheduled for May 17, 2014.

Competitive Stipend: Your salary is covered while overseas – airfare, housing, health insurance, evacuation and meals are provided through the competitive stipend award. 

The 2013-2014 application deadline has passed. Visit the Yale/Stanford Physician Global Health Scholars Program website for more information on how to apply for 2014-2015 »
