It is a grassroots experiential learning program designed for budding entrepreneurs or those looking for career enhancement, higher education, refining professional skills and competencies or just exploring the public health or development landscape. Fellows would be placed in any one of our currently active programs across states. You will work alongside our program officers at the block and village level. You will be assigned tasks based on a combination of program needs and your interests and skills.
This Fellowship has inspired me to go above and beyond one’s call of duty in order to plant the seeds of change. I have been able to see the realities of primary health service delivery in rural areas and address the inefficiencies that arise. Overall, it’s been a transformative experience.

From growing as an individual while living away from comforts, to learning about MCHN in rural Rajasthan, I gained valuable experiences and understanding of the grassroots level program implementation and monitoring, during the course of my Fellowship.
