Applications for the 2020 - 2022 Cohort Are Now Closed

Site Fellows

Site Fellows are health workers who are currently employed by HEAL partner sites. They have spent years embedded in and working in the communities they serve and in most cases and have a deep, demonstrated commitment to to doing this work for the long haul, to their personal growth, and to this global community. Most of our site fellows are from the communities where they work.  They come from a variety of occupations in health, from physicians to nurses to counselors to program managers and beyond. Site fellows complete the two year fellowship alongside working full time at their site/organization. 

To become a site fellow, you must be a full-time employee at one of our partner sites. Applicants must submit an application and receive support from their supervisor.
