Position description

Since 2009, Global Health Corps (GHC) has built a network of 1150+ next gen leaders committed to transforming health systems. Through a robust fellowship and alumni program, GHC seeds the health sector with innovative and resilient young leaders and invests in them to grow and drive systems change across their careers. GHC serves as a critical talent pipeline for its partners, an entry point to global health for non-clinical leaders who join as fellows, and a leadership accelerator for alumni and their networks. GHC leaders are concentrated in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and the U.S., but the network has a truly global reach across 40+ countries and 450+ health organizations.

GHC is developing a new vision for its US-based programming. The United States Program Coordinator (USPC) will play a critical role in contributing to the design and implementation of a re-imagined leadership development program for emerging health leaders in the United States. Reporting to the United States Program Manager (USPM), this hire will bring energy for building something new, agility in moving between strategy and implementation, and the ability to cultivate connections and support the professional development of POC and other historically underrepresented talent in health leadership roles.

Specifically, the US Program Coordinator will: 

  • In close collaboration with the USPM, support the design, development, and implementation of a pilot program for a 9-12 month fellowship for emerging and underrepresented talent working within the domestic public health system. 
  • Contribute to the development and continual refinement of systems and processes needed to recruit, select, and support fellows, with an eye on laying the foundation for scaling the program over time. 
  • Manage the fellow recruitment and selection process through developing strategies for outreach, creating promotional materials, managing the application database (Wizehive) and application vetting process, as well as ensuring data integrity and smooth user experience. Design recruitment strategies to engage historically underrepresented groups in health leadership roles. 
  • Build relationships with fellows, conduct regular check-ins to understand their professional needs, solicit their feedback, and provide ongoing coaching and support. 
  • Develop and facilitate in-person and virtual events to foster community building and leadership development amongst the entire fellow class. 
  • Support networking and engagement of US public health organizations as recruitment and training partners. 
  • Support the work of the Community Impact Team to build-out alumni programming, networking opportunities, and ongoing professional development. 
  • Support the work of the Impact and Learning Manager to implement a robust monitoring and evaluation framework. 
  • Collaborate with GHC's global team to share best practices and resources, as well as regularly communicate updates about the US program. 
  • Contribute to the development of the US program budget. 


  • An enthusiastic advocate for Global Health Corps’ mission and values. You are inspired to grow a successful program that is building a movement for global health equity. You thrive on a close-knit team that values shared integrity, inclusive collaboration, sustainable resilience, and continuous learning. An understanding and/or lived experience with health equity challenges in the US is a plus.  
  • An energetic and adaptable program and systems builder. You bring at least 3 years of work experience in nonprofit program management or transferable roles, with exposure to program design, systems-building, and group facilitation. You bring excitement for building something new and “figuring it out” along the way. Experience with fellowship/leadership development programs is a plus. 
  • A thoughtful relationship builder who develops rapport easily and fosters long-term connections. You have a warm, energetic, and authentic personality that translates to building lasting relationships with a range of personalities. You are a natural networker with the ability to deepen existing relationships and develop new ones. 
  • Tech-savvy and well-organized. You have experience managing work and priorities across multiple projects. You take pride in your work product and operate with high attention to detail. Experience in Google Suite, Zoom, Dropbox, Asana, and relational databases is a plus. 
  • An action-oriented, resourceful, and collaborative team member. You possess a “get it done” attitude, with the ability to stay focused and nimble in a dynamic environment. You work effectively across teams, time zones, and with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. 
  • Applicants who are GHC Fellowship Alumni must have completed at least one year of full-time employment after their fellowship year.
