Mission Details
The Global Health Service Partnership’s (GHSP) goal is to contribute to increasing clinical care capacity and to growing stronger health sectors by deploying medical and nursing educators. The Partnership is committed to provider training and capacity building, planting the seeds for a sustainable impact on global health care delivery. Applications to deploy in July 2014 are due November 1, 2013. Location will either be Malawi, Tanzania, or Uganda and is dependant on matching need with specialty. ELIGIBILITY: Physicians must be Board eligible or board certified and nurses must have a BSN with an MPH, or an MSN, APRN, DNP, PhD and/or a CNS and a minimum of 3 years experience in a clinical specialty. Both physicians and nurses have to have an active license in the United States (and will have to meet in-country licensing requirements as well). SPOUSE TRAVEL: Spouses may either apply to be GHSP Volunteers as well or Peace Corps Response Volunteers. At the moment, GHSP does not offer options for families to participate, although this may change in the future.

In addition, through loan and debt repayment of up to $30,000, Seed Global Health reduces the barriers for the highest-qualified candidates to participate in the GHSP program.
