Residency Global Health Track

James Keck, MD, MPH  

The Department of Family & Community Medicine offers a Global Health track, a focus-area curriculum for residents interested in learning about the social determinants of health and care of vulnerable populations at home and abroad.  The emphasis is on experiential learning about sustainable change through community engagement, exploring social determinants of health and the intersection of puplic health practice and community medicine.  This track is open to incoming PGY-1 residents. Global Health Track residents will complete a minimum of 8 weeks of global health clinical electives (domestic and/or international).

 Application: Residents interested in the Global Health Track may apply upon acceptance to the Family & Community Medicine Residency program by submitting a statement of interest that addresses their motivation for participation and how this program would benefit their career goals to Medical Education Specialist Senior, Josh Ward.
