Cornell University

The Anesthesiology Global Health Fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center is an intensive one-year program focused on providing residency-trained anesthesiologists an opportunity to become world leaders in global health and human rights. The aim is to train individuals in both clinical medicine and medical anthropology through an innovative educational curriculum.

Duke University

The Duke University Global Health Anesthesiology Fellowship is a 24-month program available for US-trained anesthesiologist applicants who have completed at least PGY-2 year of an accredited anesthesiology training program with interest in a career in global health. Fellows will spend 7-12 months of their fellowship at a global partner site.

Lifebox Fellowship

Lifebox offers a variety of fellowship opportunities to clinical, research, and pedagogic professionals at all stages of their careers. Fellows are assigned a mentor and work directly with Lifebox team members and partners to achieve programmatic and/or research objectives. Lifebox Fellows gain first-hand experience in program delivery, training, and research to improve the safety of surgical and anesthesia care in resource-limited settings. Fellows must be able to commit at least six months, but ideally one year to be considered for the fellowship. A flexible schedule is available.

Oxford University

The Oxford Fellowship in Global Anaesthesia offers the opportunity to explore issues relevant to global health alongside clinical commitments within the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Global Anaesthesia Fellow will use their non-clinical time (typically one session per week) to contribute to ongoing projects within existing networks, such as the Oxford Global Surgery Group, and/or to work on their own project (subject to supervisor’s approval).

Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship Research Fellow Track: Anesthesia

The Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship aims to train leaders to promote universal access to global surgical, obstetric, and anesthesia care through research, policy development, advocacy, and capacity building. Fellows will develop academic, research, and administrative skills in global surgery, public health, and surgical systems development. Throughout the course of the fellowship, there will be a focus on developing a skill set necessary to promote the role of surgery, anesthesia, and obstetrics and gynecology in health systems strengthening and universal health coverage.

Stanford University

The Stanford University postdoctoral Global Anesthesia fellowship program is designed to increase fellows’ breadth and depth of knowledge regarding complex issues contributing to disparities in health. The ideal fellow will have plans to incorporate the knowledge and skillset gained over the fellowship year to improve perioperative healthcare delivery for disadvantaged patients. Fellows will spend up to 12 weeks working in a medically underserved setting.

University of California San Diego

The Department of Anesthesiology at the University of California San Diego offers a one-year fellowship in Global Health with an emphasis on policy. The fellowship aims to provide exposure to a range of options in global health fieldwork, from supporting a residency program to working alongside anesthesia assistants with very limited formal training, to providing services where none are available. The goal is to help build capacity and improve safety in low-resource settings.

University of California San Francisco

The University of California San Francisco offers multiple different fellowships pathways to anesthesia fellows and visiting scholars. Opportunities include the 2-year Health, Equity, Action, and Leadership (HEAL) fellowship, 1-2-year Anesthesia Global Health Equity Fellowship, 1–2-year Center for Health Equity in Surgery and Anesthesia (CHESA) fellowship, and a 1-year MedEd Simulation fellowship. Application requirements and qualifications vary between the different fellowship pathways.

University of Washington

The Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine offers a 1–2-year fellowship in Global Health and Anesthesiology. The Global Health and Anesthesiology fellowship will emphasize the sociopolitical, economic, and geographic factors that, in addition to biomedical factors, have an impact on health in developing countries.

Vanderbilt University

Vanderbilt University offers a Global Anesthesiology Fellowship with the stated goal to recruit and train anesthesiologists committed to transformative clinical, research, and teaching impact at sites around the globe to address gaps in worldwide anesthesia care. The fellowship incorporates an innovative curriculum that capitalizes on the strengths of Vanderbilt University’s Department of Anesthesiology, including its internationally recognized expertise and global partnerships. The fellowship is offered in 1- and 2-year timelines.
