Global Health

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a strong commitment to global health education. Recognizing that we live in a global community, we seek to provide our residents with a deeper understanding of culture, language, society, and health in diverse communities. We believe that global health experiences and education are an ideal way to increase this awareness. The goal of the global health program is to build relationships with partnering institutions to improve health and education in their communities.

The Department of Emergency Medicine offers residents several opportunities to participate in global health experiences through global health electives, local to global involvement, the 3+1 global health fellowship, or participating in research.

Current projects and opportunities include:

  • Clinical work and teaching in San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala
  • Establishing clinical ultrasound in Lima, Peru
