The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics Global Health Program is an integral part of the Pediatric and Med/Peds Residency Programs. Established in 2007, the primary goals of the program are to:

  1. Develop culturally appropriate curriculum that equips residents to provide compassionate and evidence-based medical care in areas with limited resources
  2. Assist with choosing and preparing for international electives that cater to each resident’s career goals and personal interests
  3. Optimize global health education opportunities both here and abroad
  4. Ensure safe international elective experiences for all trainees
  5. Improve the health of children in developing countries through collaborative partnerships with our Department of Pediatrics and international sites.

On this website, you will find details regarding the pediatric residency global health track, tools to assist with choosing international electives, information for faculty, calendars for conferences, and other useful resources.

Milwaukee’s population is culturally diverse, and within the confines of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin we serve a global community. Given the current U.S. national government’s dedication to improving healthcare in this country, as well as local efforts by the Board of Directors of the Children’s Hospital and Health System of Wisconsin to have the healthiest children in the nation, it is imperative that we train future physicians to confidently treat all patients, regard-less of ethnic background. Sixty percent of the residents who receive training at Children’s Hospital remain in Wisconsin to care for children in our community—a community that continues to see a large influx of immigrants, international adoptees, growing healthcare disparities and increasing demand for medical pre and post-travel counseling.

To best serve our community, and to equip our pediatric trainees to become competent pediatricians globally, the Department of Pediatrics developed a Global Health Training Track in 2010.
