Global Health Clinical Electives - Residents

Residents are encouraged to consider the opportunity to take a clinical global health elective. Residents will have the opportunity to undertake a clinical elective in any of our on-going field stations. All will travel to under-resourced countries and learn to practice medicine within a range of environments in urban and rural communities and high-disparity situations. This program is designed to enhance residents knowledge in global health, cross-cultural training, tropical and all other medicine and public health.  

A unique opportunity has been developed to encourage a full range of experiences in the Global Health Program’s Field Station Program, currently in about ten countries with new countries being added each year.  It is recommended to do the 3-hour Risk Management session.
