Global Health Residency Manual

G-PEDS Online Curriculum
The Global Pediatrics Education Series consists of 28 modules of online lecture-based content, which encompasses many of the key concepts of global child health specifically. Modules are self-paced but should be completed prior to each resident’s international elective experience.

2-week Global Health Rotation
As a dedicated two-week rotation in the Fall of second year, pathway residents participate in an intensive didactic block with lectures, simulation labs, case-based discussions, ethics conferences, journal clubs, laboratory training, and hands-on clinical training.

Individualized Pediatric Residency Curriculum
All pediatric residents have the opportunity to individualize their curriculum to meet their specific career goals. In collaboration with their program director and global health mentor, pathway residents will have the opportunity to partake in a number of clinical rotations that complement their training in global child health.

Global Health Review Article
Pathway residents will be provided mentorship in selecting a global health topic of interest for literature review and potential manuscript publication.
With a goal to broaden one’s understanding of a specific global health topic, each resident will work closely with his or her mentor on this project throughout all three years of residency training.

International Experience
Pathway residents will have the opportunity to participate in an in-depth clinical experience for two months during their final year of residency. As a participant in the global health pathway, funding of travel and accommodations will be provided.
