Healthcare Innovation Opportunity in India for Summer 2013

The Care Companion team (fatefully drawn together through Stanford's Design for Extreme Affordability class in 2012) is looking to bring on another team member. This person would be on the ground in Mysore, India between June-August 2013 to collaborate with our very awesome partner, Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital (NH), and take Care Companion to the next level.

The Care Companion Program is designed to transform family members from passive bystanders to active participants in a loved one's care, because no one cares more for a patient, than a daughter, son, wife, or husband. It's an in-hospital initiative that educates, empowers, and trains family caregivers with the skills and confidence to become care providers for patients who have undergone a major surgery, while in the hospital and at home. The program was created for family members of all literacy lives (some of the star performers are non-literate), who have had limited or no access to medical professionals.
The CCP team & NH beta-tested the program in Summer 2012, before its launch in NH hospital in Mysore this past March. While part of the program's goals are to task shift high-yield but time-consuming jobs from nurses to family caregivers, the ultimate purpose of the Care Companion Program is to improve the quality of care delivered and facilitate a smooth transition home post-discharge.

Job description:
We're looking for a think-on-your-feet, bias-toward-action awesome individual who wants to play a critical role in designing a health systems service innovation. Someone who would want to get knee deep-- probably even neck deep-- in the iterative process of empathy/needs-finding and prototyping. Someone who is able to look at problems with a critical eye, and a first thought is, How might we make this better?

The intern would be on the ground in Mysore, India for 6-10 weeks working closely with NH management and a local nurse educator who is responsible for the Care Companion Program to:
? Assess program operations and provide support if necessary.
? Design and prototype additions / modifications to the program (i.e., mobile platform for post-discharge education, improved communication systems between NH staff and family caregivers, sky's the limit!)
? Communicate and collaborate with the other five members of the Care Companion team.

What we'll provide:
? Cost of travel, lodging, visa.
? Stipend for food & in-country transportation

What we're looking for:
? Masters student/grad, PhD candidate, recent grad, graduating senior, or highly-motivated undergrad.
? Experience working and problem solving in low-resource settings.
? International experience in a developing country setting highly recommended.
? Cultural competency & willingness to be flexible.
? All academic backgrounds welcome, but basic health literacy a must.
? Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Pro experience preferred.

Application materials must be emailed by 11:59pm, Saturday, April 20.
Applicants selected for a brief interview will be contacted by April 27.

Microgrant Coordinator Volunteer Position Opening: Teach For Health

San Ramon, Nicaragua

In August 2012 a new Microgrant Empowerment Initiative was introduced in the health promoter program, providing a series of 55 small grants to participant communities. Grants range from $50-$1500 per project and are meant to supply seed funding and infrastructure investment that is paired with substantial community sourced investments in volunteer time, and a small proportion of matching funds. Successful completion of entry level projects qualifies communities and their representative promoters for increased funds and larger and more complex projects.

Volunteer Position:

Teach for Health is currently seeking Regional Microgrant Coordinators for the summer of 2013. This is a volunteer position, where advanced students or public health professional volunteers will be assigned to a geographic region with 1-5 participating communities. Volunteers will meet with health promoters to help develop project ideas, travel via public transportation to the communities to view projects in action, troubleshoot project implementation, assist with outcome measure selection and monitoring, and provide general mentorship. We anticipate that this will be a challenging but incredibly rewarding chance to work creatively with a large number of diverse community based programs. Volunteers are expected to assist health promoters in their efforts, catalyzing community driven change rather than implementing their own agenda. Host families will be available for approximately $10/day with meals in country provided. We will assist applicants with funding applications to UCSF and other identified sources to help mitigate traveling expenses. In country support will be provided by Peace Corps Volunteer(s) and full time Teach for Health employees.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:
1) Strong conversational Spanish ability (native fluency is not required). Must be able to talk comfortably about a wide range of health topics in Spanish, navigate public transportation, and assist with meetings where no English assistance will be available.
2) Must be able to commit to a minimum of 6 weeks in Nicaragua (8 weeks+ is preferred) between June and August 2013. Additional orientation sessions in San Francisco will be required prior to departure.
3) Prior global health experience, classwork, and program development experience is preferred but not required.
4) Students from all professional disciplines at UCSF are encouraged (medicine, nursing, pharmacy etc), as well as residents and faculty. Volunteers will be expected to work within the limits of their current experience and training with regards to any patient care opportunities and advising roles.
5) Independence, creativity, and ability to work collaboratively with a large number of people are essential.

The TB Alliance business model and diverse partnerships enable them to leverage $1.66 worth of partner services for every dollar invested in the TB Alliance.

The TB Alliance offers the greatest concentration of TB drug development expertise in the world and is uniquely positioned to broker collaborative relationships that are traditionally not possible.
