APPLY TO BE A NURSE OR PHYSICIAN EDUCATOR



The Global Health Service Partnership

The health of billions of people across the globe is directly influenced by the number of health care professionals in their communities. The dire shortage of 7.2 million physicians and nurses in 83 countries is perpetuated by the scarcity of educators in medical, nursing and other health science schools in many parts of the world. This crisis is particularly severe in sub-Saharan Africa, which bears 24 percent of the world’s disease burden, but has only three percent of the world’s health care workforce.

The Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) – a unique collaboration between Seed Global Health, Peace Corps and the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) – was established to strengthen health education and service delivery by working with partner countries to meet their long-term health care human resource needs. GHSP places volunteer physicians and nurses as visiting faculty for one-year rotations in medical and nursing schools in Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Liberia, and Swaziland (nursing opportunities only) to address this persistent shortage of health care professionals.

GHSP applications for the 2018-2019 academic year are not currently open.
