Global Health Leadership Track

The Global Health Leadership Track (GHLT) is a program available to residents in the Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Anesthesiology, Pathology, Radiology, Emergency Medicine, and Dermatology Residency Programs.  The GHLT prepares physicians to become leaders in global health practice, research, policy and education.


The Global Health Leadership Track combines didactic learning with international medical rotations and research to develop future leaders in Global Health. Residents will participate in two-week intensive courses, monthly international rounds, journal clubs, and round table dinners. During their time abroad residents identify needs in their international community and work on a project to answer questions or improve care related to that need. Ideally previous projects are stepping stones for future ones. Residents may choose instead to take part in larger, established projects at their site.
