The HEAL Initiative is a two-year fellowship program that provides integrated training to health professionals committed to improving the health of underserved populations in the U.S. and around the globe. Our program links US based physicians with other health practitioners already serving their own communities in Haiti, Liberia, India, Mexico, and Navajo Nation. While providing all our fellows with the training and mentorship needed for effective health care delivery in low resource settings, we aim to create a new generation of global health experts who share a deep commitment to equity, justice, and reciprocity.
