CFHI is a global family of health professionals and students working at the grassroots level. CFHI's Global Health Education programs connect local health professionals with international students, transforming perspectives about self, global health and healing.
CFHI works at 30+ sites in 10 countries with over 250 partners and has enrolled students from over 35 countries, with more than 8,000 alumni to date. Our Global Health Education programs are also often referred to as global health internships, clinical electives, away rotations, or externships. They are open to all with an interest in global health and a passion for serving the underserved.
CFHI programs offer first-hand experiences alongside local physicians and public health experts in developing countries. They combine instruction, experience, service, and reflection, to create a model that supports physicians, clinical sites and addresses the healthcare needs of the underserved.
We want to bring together bright, eager minds to find solutions to addressing global health inequities at home and abroad. Our mantra is: Let the world change you!
