DGHI's education and training footprint reaches beyond our campus in Durham. DGHI faculty, affiliates and partners are also training the next generation of health workers and policy leaders in China and Rwanda. Through a partnership with one of China's leading universities, Peking University, DGHI faculty teach a two-week global health diploma program to hundreds of of Chinese students and health policy leaders. In Rwanda, Duke is one of several US institutions partnering with the Clinton Health Access Initiative in a bold effort to improve the health system by training hundreds of health providers.
DGHI postdoctoral fellowships involve close mentorship and opportunities to conduct meaningful research. DGHI has supported postdoctoral fellows with varying specialties and geographic areas of interest. Each fellow works under the mentorship of a DGHI faculty member or other Duke faculty.
