CFHI also offers other scholarships that I also encourage your students to consider by visiting https://www.cfhi.org/scholarships

Finally, we are very proud of the great care and research CFHI has undertaken to safely re-launch in-person electives. We anticipate opening Oaxaca, México, Quito, Ecuador, and Accra, Ghana in January and February 2022.

Using a complex set of metrics, these are currently the only sites under consideration for the first two months of 2022 as they have sufficiently favorable COVID-19 and other health and safety conditions. Please visit our website <http://www.cfhi.org/> regularly to find the most updated information regarding on-site re-opening.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Jenny Samaan at jsamaan@cfhi.org. Students can write to: students@cfhi.org.

Best Regards,



Jessica Evert MD

Global Medical Director, Child Family Health International
