Announcing the Stanford African Global Health Scholars Program

We’re excited to announce a new initiative to promote health equity, capacity-strengthening, and unique focused learning between African medical institutions and Stanford. The three-year program will fund 24 mid-career physicians from African countries to travel to Stanford for a six-week period, gaining a specific skill set the African scholars have identified. They will then return to their home countries to conduct a year-long clinical improvement project focused on the skill set they acquired. A unique feature of the program is that Pfizer will then provide a grant to the scholar’s home institution to implement a project that uses their new skills.
