Professional Development

The HEAL Initiative recognizes the importance in strengthening a global healthcare workforce in the key areas of public and global health. The ever-evolving face of global health requires a level of understanding, praxis and training that enables a community health worker, nurse, dentist, pharmacist, physician and traditional healer to be effective in settings that are deeply rooted in structural violence, injustice and inequality.  To meet this need, HEAL provides fellows with financial support toward professional development opportunities, including a funded graduate degree.
