Global Health Electives
A global health elective broadens a medical student's horizon and education and allows students to recognize the vast discrepancies in care provided in other countries and to hopefully be empowered to address health care disparities in their future careers. Students interested in opportunities to do a global health elective are encouraged to contact the Global Health Program Manager, Tifany Frazer for more information. A list of current M4 Student Global Health Electives (PDF) to get started can be reviewed in planning preparation.
Graduate Medical Education
There are several MCW departments that have long-term, sustainable global health partnerships in education. For example, The Department of Pediatrics is developing a culturally-competent curriculum that equips pediatric residents to provide compassionate and excellent medical care in areas with limited resources, and to optimize global health education opportunities both here and abroad.
