CU Med-Peds is proud to participate in the global health experiences of both the Pediatric and Internal Medicine categorical programs. Established opportunities include away rotations in Guatemala and Zimbabwe, but residents are also able choose from many other international sites. In addition, if a resident has an established relationship with a country/hospital/clinic, our leadership team will help you design a rotation to permit you to return to that site. There are lots of options! Residents with a strong interest in global health can work with program faculty to tailor a curriculum specific to their goals. Both categorical programs have global health pathways that are open to Med-Peds residents.
CU Med-Peds is affiliated with the Center for Global Health on campus. This gives us access to their free lecture series, an annual Global Health and Disasters course, research opportunities and support for international travel.
We have opportunities to participate in both local and international electives pertaining to global health. These include but are not limited to Refugee Health, Indian Health Service, Underserved Medicine, and international rotations.
Our two most established opportunities with some support for expenses incurred are:
