Through the Duke Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health, Fellows can participate in the Duke Global Health Residency/Fellowship Pathway. This pathway delivers tailored postgraduate training experiences by integrating specialty-specific research opportunities, masters-level didactic training, and close mentorship to develop careers in global health.

  • Includes the Master of Science in Global Health, a 38-credit curriculum that includes six core courses, electives, a field experience to apply learned research methods, and a research-based scholarly thesis.
  • Graduates are prepared to engage in clinical, epidemiological, social-behavioral, and policy-oriented research, and to design, implement, and manage health programs which target the reduction of health disparities.
  • Participants will have a 9-12 month intensive field experience in a resource-poor area of the world.
