The Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship was created to train leaders who will further promote surgical care, education, and research pertinent to global surgery. Fellows will develop academic, clinical, and administrative skills in global surgery, public health, surgical systems development, and humanitarian aid. Throughout the course of the Fellowship, there will be a focus on developing a skill set necessary to treat conditions common in resource-poor settings.

Research Fellow Track: This is a two-year position for those who are currently in surgical training or residency, and who wish to take time off during their training to conduct research. All surgical subspecialties are encouraged to apply, including general surgery, OBGYN, orthopedic surgery, and neurosurgery.
Interested fellows may also incorporate a Masters of Public Health degree during their fellowship, but this option is not compulsory. Please note that the MPH is a separate application through the Harvard School of Public Health. Tuition and fees associated with the MPH program will be the responsibility of the Fellow.
