The Fung Fellowship for Wellness and Technology Innovations is a unique program at UC Berkeley that brings together undergraduates from across the campus to address public health challenges through digital technology solutions. Selected for their transformative vision, capacity for collaboration, and commitment to innovating in the health and wellness field, Fung Fellows are empowered with the knowledge, tools, and experiences necessary to become leaders, entrepreneurs, and agents of change.
During the two-year program, Fung Fellows participate in a model of undergraduate education that emphasizes learning by doing with students’ co-creating the curriculum, participating in design challenges, leading class discussion sections, and collaborating on teams. Over the course of two years, Fellows develop fluency across the domains of design, leadership, public health, and technology.
Community and industry partnerships are a cornerstone of the Fellowship program. By engaging with community organizations, Fellows deepen their understanding of real-life experiences and the needs of different communities. Through industry partnerships, Fellows work on meaningful health and wellness technology projects. The Fellowship also provides opportunities for internships, professional development, and networking with innovators in the healthcare and technology space. By the end of the program, Fung Fellows are prepared with the knowledge and skills needed to understand complex public health issues and excel in the 21st century digital economy.
The Fung Fellowship is a collaboration between the Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership, School of Public Health, and entrepreneur, founder of Blue Goji, and UC Berkeley alum Coleman Fung.
