Please note this program is an unpaid global health education program. There is a program fee required to participate. This program fee compensates our instructors fairly. CFHI is a nonprofit organization committed to fair-trade partnerships around the world.
The CFHI Virtual Global Health Practicum is a structured, supervised, and evaluated professional experience for Master’s and Professional level students to apply their relevant skills, knowledge, and values in a real-world setting.
The virtual practicum consists of a 110-200 hours (depending on the university/institution) and must address at least three (3) of the Global Health Education Competencies. CFHI identifies appropriate projects for applicants based on the needs and interests of our global partners. CFHI utilizes an Asset-Based Community Development approach, so all practicum projects are locally-led and building on existing strengths and resources, prioritizing sustainability and best practices for ethical engagement.
In addition to developing and sharpening global health capacities, trainees will build skills needed to effectively work across intercultural teams, as they will play a key role in keeping project timelines moving and ensure milestones and deliverables are met.
CFHI is currently offering practica focused in the following countries, and new sites may be added:
Bolivia – Intermediate Spanish or above required (will require a Spanish evaluation)
Costa Rica – Intermediate Spanish or above recommended
