Global Health Track
As pediatricians, we recognize that children across the world have multiple medical needs. While global health electives have become more common, residencies struggle with integration of global health training. The global health track will provide residents with training in international medical care as it relates to children’s health. This will be done through a series of electives that will include education in epidemiology, research, tropical medicine, health problems of international travelers, cultural competency, and communication skills. In addition, there will be targeted educational opportunities in foreign countries and related research opportunities. Sustainability of care will be integral to the success of this track.
