Clincal/Service Elective Rotation 

Now accepting applications for AY 21-22 (January 2022 - June 2022 only)

The Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health provides two-month Clinical/Service Elective Rotations for current Duke Residents in the following programs:

  • Medicine (PGY 2)
  • Pediatrics (PGY 2)
  • Med-Peds (PGY3)     
  • Med-Psych (PGY 4)
  • Neurology (PGY 3)

Applications are accepted the fall prior to the academic year during which the rotations occur. Please Note: Due to COVID-19, eight week rotations for AY21-22 will be offered January 2022 or March 2022 ONLY.

These elective rotations provide a valuable and unique experience for our residents. Residents choose from a wide selection of global partner locations where they can provide clinical care to patients. Some locations only permit observation; however, many opportunities are available for residents to expand their teaching and lecturing skills.

  • Academic preparation and strength;
  • Evidence of maturity, responsibility, cultural sensitivity; 
  • Significance of pursuing a global health opportunity to further career goals;

To be considered, residents must provide:

  • A completed application,
  • A statement from your Program Director giving you permission to apply, and
