EqualHealth is proud to announce the arrival of the inaugural cohort of Fellows participating in the Marshall Wolf Medical Education Fellowship. The Fellows, both outstanding physicians and educators, will spend the next three months in Boston, participating in a rich curriculum designed to support their growth as teachers and leaders. They will then work with EqualHealth in partnership with their home institutions in Haiti for the following nine months to develop a research or quality improvement project. We are honored to work with such talented and motivated clinical educators, and invite you to meet our Fellows below!
