The Global Health Services Corps (GHSC) has announced the inaugural season for applications from qualified nurses and doctors for the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP), a new program in partnership with the Peace Corps. GHSP volunteers will serve one year assignments as faculty members of nursing and medical schools. The program will launch in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda in 2013, and the program is currently accepting applications.
ANAC member and Global HIV Nursing Specialty Committee co-chair Pat Daoust, the Chief Nursing Officer for GHSC, says that "GHSP provides a unique opportunity for U.S. nurse educators to work collaboratively with their oversease colleagues in addressing a long recognized barrier to building strong and sustainable health care systems. As faculty and clinical mentors, our volunteers will live, learn and work together with the nursing community. I believe we are helping to fulfill one of the original goals of the Peace Corps."
Peace Corps is now accepting applications from qualified individuals interested in serving as nursing or medical educators in Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda through the Peace Corps Response program.
