CIDRZ HealthCorps Fellowship 2015-16: Call for Applications Now Open

Closing Date: 16 March 2015 

Introducing the CIDRZ HealthCorps Fellowship previously known as HIVCorps

The CIDRZ HealthCorps Fellows Programme provides a valuable field training opportunity for future Zambian and expatriate public health leaders in the setting of a vibrant international organisation based in Lusaka. Fellowship attachments are 10-12 months long. The HealthCorps Fellowship provides opportunities to gain field experience in:

  • Programme implementation and management
  • Clinical trials research
  • Clinical care quality improvement systems
  • Data management, analysis and implementation science
  • Public health communications

The HealthCorps Fellowship targets medical, nursing or MPH students; recent graduates who wish to gain international experience; and college graduates with substantial skills or experience. Individuals with project management, public health, community outreach, research coordination, data management, statistical analysis, IT, scientific writing, and laboratory experience are particularly encouraged to apply. Previous international work experience is highly regarded, but not a requirement. For the 2015-16 fellowships we anticipate selecting 8-10 individuals who will be based in the capital Lusaka, with possible travel to various parts of Zambia. A modest monthly bursary to cover some of the travel costs and basic living expenses is available, local medical membership and emergency evacuation insurance is provided by CIDRZ. All accepted HealthCorps Fellows must be ready to attend orientation in the last week of July 2015. Fellowships start in August 2015.
