Please visit our new website
which summarizes a lot of the global health activity in the department.
Also, we have a new global anesthesia fellowship for physicians after residency who aim to spend a large part of their career in international work focused on education, service, volunteerism and the advancement of global health equality. Dr. Ana Crawford is the Program Director for this Fellowship.
The Stanford Center for Global Health has a website
that lists opportunities for residents as well. For example, the center is debuting a new Fellowship, this one in Global Health Media in partnership with NBC News. This program provides practical training in global health reporting using a variety of media platforms including: radio, print, investigative journalism, photography, television and social networking.
Up to two fellows are selected to complete a 12-month fellowship with leading media companies, examples include: NBC News, ProPublica, NING, and the Journal for Health Affairs. Fellows complete training programs through the Stanford University Graduate Program in Journalism and the Kaiser Family Foundation. A documentary filmmaker and an award-winning photographer will train fellows in the impact that still photographs and short films can have on global health. The Fellow may intern with ProPublica learning how to report and work on stories with “moral force”. S/he will also be embedded with Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Chief Medical Editor for NBC News and her producer to research the ‘news of the day’ and learn how Nightly News stories are chosen to be highlighted in the US.
