Recognizing the need for multiple specialties to address diverse global health problems, the Global Health Pathway has enrolled trainees from Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Infectious Diseases, Internal Medicine, Neurosurgery, Pediatric Cardiology, Pulmonary & Critical Care, Psychiatry, and Radiation Oncology. Subspecialty curricula are tailored to meet specialty-specific topics and requirements.
The 38-credit curriculum includes six core courses, electives, a field experience to apply learned research methods, and a research-based scholarly thesis. Graduates are prepared to engage in clinical, epidemiological, social-behavioral, and policy-oriented research, and to design, implement, and manage health programs which target the reduction of health disparities.
The Pathway includes a nine to twelve month intensive field experience at one of our global partner sites. During the field experience, trainees will have opportunity to apply newly acquired skills in both a clinical and research capacity while developing leadership skills in community coalition building, program development, and cultural competency.
