SocMed offers the annual Oryema Fellowship in Social Medicine for one individual. Named in honor of Oryema Patrick, a nurse dedicated to equitable health care delivery in Northern Uganda who died in 2011, the fellowship aims to mentor, inspire, and challenge practitioners of social medicine through a year-long endeavor in the coordination and implementation of social medicine education. The fellow will work closely with the SocMed team to support the logistical, organizational, and pedagogical aspects of our courses in Minnesota and Uganda. Fellows will also participate in research and writing about the course, curricular development, and fundraising for SocMed. The fellowship runs from August - June each year with the expectation that time will be spent in both Minnesota and Uganda. The fellowship includes financial support to help cover living expenses and travel in Uganda.
We are currently recruiting for our 2019-2020 Oryema Fellow. See announcement and application details below.
