Executive Director



GlobeMed connects university-based chapters with grassroots organizations in one-to-one, long-term partnerships. These partnerships take learning into the real world to help undergraduate students develop essential skills and perspectives that advance the movement for global health equity. Today there are GlobeMed chapters at 58 universities, each of which partners with one grassroots organization in Africa, Asia, or the Americas.

GlobeMed was founded ten years ago by a group of students who sought to challenge the status quo. Frustrated by the global engagement options offered on their campuses, they created a new model to partner with grassroots leaders who are already working to unleash the potential of their own communities. In the past decade these partnerships have improved the health of hundreds of thousands of people and challenged mainstream perceptions of young people’s capabilities.

Since 2007, we have mobilized over 2,000 current students and 4,000 alumni to raise over $2.5 million for more than 380 health projects in 19 countries across Africa, Asia, North America, and South America. From renovating a clinic in Rwanda to supporting nutrition initiatives in Cambodia to enhancing sanitation programs in El Salvador, these projects have tangibly improved the lives of thousands of people living in poverty around the world. You can find out more here in our 10th Year Impact Report.  



We are looking for a visionary and strategic leader to build upon GlobeMed’s strong record of accomplishments and play a vital role in the organization’s next phase of growth. This is an opportunity to catalyze a strong organization into a new chapter through deepening of university-based programs and development of new initiatives for alumni and peers. The organization is primed to become a model for global networks by sparking new forms of collaboration, and the Executive Director will have the chance to build sustainable revenue and impact in creative, exciting ways over the coming years.

As the Executive Director, you will lead a full-time passionate staff of six in addition to a small team of energetic and driven volunteers. You will report to an active and supportive 15-person Board of Directors.  

You will lead the staff and steward the board in their roles. You’ll be the public face of the organization, establishing and ensuring the integrity of its brand and reputation. You will be a leader, manager, and spokesperson with outstanding strategic, communication, collaboration, and fundraising skills.
