Dr. Bob Einterz, a co-founder of the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH), firmly believes that medical training side-by-side with peers from IU and Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya could create the next generation of health leaders better prepared to serve our global community.

The Einterz Global Health Education Fund, honoring Bob and Lea Anne, supports training exchange opportunities for Kenyan medical students and registrars (residents) to study at IU. It also supports Slemenda Scholars and IU trainees for two-month rotations in Kenya and beyond with hands-on experience in hospitals and urban and rural clinical sites. These life-changing experiences are igniting the potential of more young physicians committed to health equity.

The average total cost for a Kenyan trainee spending 8 weeks at IU is $5,000, including travel from Eldoret to Indianapolis, living expenses and visa and immigration fees. For every $2 you donate to the Einterz Global Health Education Fund, $1 will be matched by generous donors.

In 1990, Bob was the first IU Team Leader in Kenya with Lea Anne and their young family by his side. Bob served as the first AMPATH Consortium Director, Associate Dean for Global Health at IU School of Medicine and Director of the IU Center for Global Health before retiring in 2020.

“I first came to Eldoret as a first-year medical student, aware of my passion for global health but with no idea how to pursue it responsibly. It was the leadership of AMPATH, both Kenyan and North American, that taught me by example.”

- Grant Callen, IU School of Medicine resident and former Slemenda Scholar (2017)

“The exchange programme provides the opportunity for students to learn from two very different settings with a greater variety of health problems and solutions. The outcome is an all-rounded doctor who not only understands the practice of medicine in the local setting, but also sees the practice of medicine with a more global lens. I should know, having benefited immensely from this programme!”

- Lukoye Atwoli, Moi University School of Medicine associate professor, dean (2014-2019) and former Moi medical student visiting IU (1999)
