Through a partnership between the HEAL Initiative and the UCSF Department of Anesthesia’s Division of Global Health Equity, this new anesthesia global health fellowship pathway offers a unique, advanced training opportunity for board-eligible and board-certified physician and non-physician anesthesiologists (surgery and obstetric pathways coming soon).
As part of the UCSF family, our fellows will have opportunities to work with many ongoing global health initiatives at UCSF including the Center for Global Surgical Studies, Global Partners in Anesthesia & Surgery, and UCSF Global Health Sciences.
Eligible fellows will have the opportunity to receive an appointment in the UCSF Department of Anesthesia and clinical privileges at the San Francisco General Hospital. One or two-year fellowship pathways will be offered (depending on partner site needs) and will includes opportunities for clinical service, teaching, policy and research at both domestic and international project sites.

UCSF-appointed fellows are paired with fellows from their collaborating international or domestic project sites. All HEAL fellows (both UCSF-appointed and project site fellows) will join together in San Francisco for a month-long intensive Global Health Training at the beginning of the fellowship.
Anesthesia and surgery fellows will also receive additional learning opportunities after the July Global Health Training, specific to provision of surgical care in low resource settings.
