Several residency programs support residents' global health interests. Here are some examples.
Department of Pediatrics Global Health Program an integral part of the Pediatric and Med/Peds Residency Programs. Established in 2007, the primary goals of the program are to:
- Develop culturally appropriate curriculum that equips residents to provide compassionate and evidence-based medical care in areas with limited resources
- Assist with choosing and preparing for international electives that cater to each resident’s career goals and personal interests
- Optimize global health education opportunities both here and abroad
- Ensure safe international elective experiences for all trainees
- Improve the health of children in developing countries through collaborative partnerships with our Department of Pediatrics and international sites.
Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Elective in Italy:
- The department offers an offsite elective with Dr. Daniela Jurisic, an MCW - PM&R alumnus, Assistant Clinical Professor. This one-month clinical experience will expose the senior resident (2 per year) to previously unencountered philosophies concerning the treatment of acute and chronic disabling pain, and will encourage the resident to continue critical re-appraisal of his/her practice methods by confrontation with a different cultural setting.
