Seed Global Health and Peace Corps Now Accepting Applications for Global Health Service Partnership Volunteers for 2015
Seed Global Health announces the opening today of the 2015 Global Health Service Partnership application cycle. Global Health Service Partnership, a joint initiative among Seed Global Health, the Peace Corps, and PEPFAR, will accept applications from physicians and nurses interested in serving as clinical educators in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda starting the summer of 2015. Participants serve one-year assignments as Peace Corps Response volunteers serving in medical and nursing schools working alongside local faculty to help expand the base of physician and nursing educators in countries that face critical shortages of health care providers.
GHSP volunteers will receive monthly living stipends, transportation to and from their country of service, and other benefits. In addition, to ensure that financial constraints do not prevent the most skilled applicants from service, Seed Global Health provides stipends of up to $30,000 (Seed Global Health Debt Repayment).

The application cycle will be open from May 19, 2014 to December 5, 2014. To find out more about applying to the Global Health Service Partnership, please click here.
