The Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health provides 2 to 3 month Global Health Elective Rotations for Duke residents in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and the combined programs of Internal Medicine/Pediatrics and Internal Medicine/Psychiatry.
These elective rotations provide a valuable and unique experience for our residents. In addition to choosing from a wide selection of available locations, residents will conduct research and/or provide clinical care to patients abroad. In limited locations, only visual observation is permitted, however, many opportunities are available for residents to expand their teaching and lecturing skills.
