Training the next generation of global health leaders
SCOPE fellows are an integral component of SCOPE's mission to strengthen partnerships between medical and faith communities to improve health. SCOPE views training the next generation of global health leaders, both in Ethiopia and the United States, as a key ingredient to the sustainability of our work. Our fellowship program provides students from graduate programs at the University of Washington and the University of Gondar with 3-6 month fieldwork experiences where they apply skills acquired in and out of the classroom in a resource-limited setting to programs aimed at improving health for women and children in Ethiopia.
SCOPE fellows are hosted by the University of Gondar in the Amhara region of Ethiopia and work closely with our partners at the College of Medicine and Health Sciences and the North Gondar Diocese of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Fellows receive mentorship from faculty and staff at our partner universities as well as guidance from the SCOPE Board of Trustees.
what does a fellow do?
Fellows work with faculty mentors to develop an action plan that leverages their skills to assist SCOPE's ongoing community service and research projects in Ethiopia. SCOPE projects seek to leverage trusted faith pathways to demonstrate measurable health improvements in the communities we serve. Past fellows have been valuable contributors to qualitative work, program implementation, program evaluation, training, and stakeholder mapping projects .
