Health care is a basic human right. Imagine having a heart attack in an area with no doctors.

Imagine a child with cancer and no cancer specialists.

The Keys of Health Fellowship identifies developing areas that lack critically needed subspecialist physicians. Working with local health care teams, outstanding local physicians are carefully selected to train in world-class facilities. Once their training is completed, these exceptional physicians return to their region, serving as leaders in health care improvement and provision of world class clinical care.
