Through an interdisciplinary cohort-based model, Schweitzer Fellows, graduate and medical students from institutions across DFW, create impactful, innovative programs fulfilling unmet health and wellbeing needs within Dallas-Fort Worth communities.
The result of the largest collaboration of universities in North Texas, the DFW Albert Schweitzer Fellowship provides graduate and medical students across the Metroplex the unique opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary cohort and launch innovative health and well-being initiatives in the community while receiving extensive mentoring and support.
At the heart of the Schweitzer Fellowship is a 200-hour service project that creates a new offering or expands an existing program within a local community organization. In addition to their projects, Schweitzer Fellows attend monthly meetings with their cohort, designed to expand their knowledge base and skills, as well as provide critical experience collaborating across disciplines.
