About


Participate
in community healthcare services and learn about the healthcare challenges
facing coastal and tropical Mumbai (Bombay), India. Students attending this
program will be able to rotate at some of the biggest infectious disease
hospitals in India and see a variety of pathologies that they may never get
the opportunity to see at home. The program combines clinical work at
government hospitals with rotations in small primary care clinics and an
opportunity to work in a rural area just outside the city. This program
offers a holistic overview of the health care system of India with an
emphasis on infectious disease.



Students gain first-hand clinical exposure to different healthcare
issues,  particularly infectious
diseases and their treatments in both urban and rural settings. Students will
see common infectious and tropical diseases such as leprosy, TB, malaria,
leishmaniasis, and dengue fever during their clinical rotations. Participants
may have a chance to also witness the manifestation of HIV/AIDS in patients
throughout the region. Students will also be provided with the opportunity to
have discussions with medical professionals on the health care system of
India and common diseases such as malaria, leishmaniasis, TB and dengue
fever, which will complement participants' clinical immersion in hospitals in
and around Mumbai.

Guidelines/Requirements:
CFHI is committed to working globally and addressing inequities. In line with this global lens, it is the policy of CFHI to actively seek a diverse pool of candidates from a variety of backgrounds who are committed to the mission and vision of CFHI. Scholarships will be given to students who demonstrate a commitment to their communities as well as financial need and an interest in exchanging ideas and sharing experiences with people in Bolivia, Ecuador, India, Mexico and South Africa. Priority will be given to people of ethnicities under-represented in CFHI programs, as well as those who have had limited opportunity to travel abroad. All interested in attending a CFHI program during the specified program months/year and who are financially able to pay the remaining program fees along with their own airfare are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to those who apply for scholarship consideration as well as submit an application to a CFHI program online. Scholarship applicants wishing to attend any CFHI program in Latin America (Mexico, Bolivia, Ecuador) must meet the language eligibility requirements listed for that program. Recipients of CFHI scholarships will be required to pay their own airfare, the balance of their CFHI program fees, and any personal expenses as outlined on the program description pages. Recipients must keep a clinical and cultural immersion journal to be used as part of their scholarship report submitted at the end of their program. They must take photographs while abroad that may be used on the CFHI website and in CFHI publications and materials. Recipients may also be required to write an article about their experience for CFHI newsletters or other publications. They must also be willing to report their perspective on diversity in the host country with particular focus in medical and social contexts. CFHI will ask recipients to act as Campus Representatives or Alumni Ambassadors for prospective CFHI participants, and may be asked to attend study abroad fairs in their local area.
