Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship
Surgeons associated with Harvard teaching hospitals, in conjunction with Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), Partners In Health (PIH), and the Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC) at Harvard Medical School are addressing the need for a surgical role in global health through the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship. In this fellowship, dedicated surgeons and surgeons-in-training are able to obtain the medical and non-medical skills they need to improve the health of some of the world's most impoverished people.

Dr. Mario Pagenel Global Mental Health Delivery Fellowship
The Dr. Mario Pagenel Fellowship in Global Mental Health Delivery provides an opportunity for career development in global mental health service delivery and research for post-graduate psychiatrists. Fellows develop expertise in the field while working with Partners In Health (PIH) and in collaboration with the Harvard Medical School Department of Global Health and Social Medicine in the Blavatnik Institute.
The Fellowship is a one to two year placement with a PIH sister organization in Haiti, Rwanda, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mexico, or Sierra Leone. By building capacity through the mobilization, training, and professional development of in-country health care providers, PIH and HMS seek to support locally feasible and sustainable structures for mental health care and, over time, to establish generalizable models for systems of mental health service delivery. The Fellowship offers a combined focus on clinical care, training and education, research and advocacy.
While most of the Fellowship consists of service delivery work, there is a significant academic research component. The fellow develops an area of academic focus in global health related to mental health service delivery and selects an academic mentor with expertise in their area of interest. Fellows have the opportunity to develop and collaborate in mentored research and educational projects with experts in the HMS Department of Global Health and Social Medicine as well as having the option of participating in ongoing research efforts. Fellows will be eligible to attend a three-week intensive summer program in Global Health Delivery at Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
