The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is a world leader in Global Health technical expertise. The Global Health Fellows Program II (GHFP-II) supports the progress of the next generation of highly-qualified Global Health professionals that is representative of the US population. The focus of GHFP-II is to promote expertise and capacity development among a wide cadre of professionals, and provide platforms and opportunities for diverse candidates starting global health careers, seeking guidance for next steps, or transitioning into international development or global health from entirely different career tracks. GHFP-II accomplishes this through a combination of professional development for our 140+ Fellows and Interns, and creative partnerships to train global health leaders from many personal backgrounds at the undergraduate, master’s, and mid-career levels. Listen in as our panel of partners and participants discusses their experiences and tell their career stories.

In this webinar panelists will reveal their unique paths in global health careers, including particular challenges they have overcome in their journeys. Find out about personal distances they have traveled, and critical observations they have of points of access to international opportunities, specialized training, and jobs. We have designed an interactive session and will have a Q&A segment. To that end, we invite you to share your questions for our panelists by submitting them at registration, and during the webinar.

Closed captioning will be available for this Web Forum.
