For Medical Residents
Develop your skills in global health
International educational experiences can greatly enhance clinical training and enrich residents’ career development. It is important to think about your motivations and learning objectives for an international experience and how those can best be met.
At Dalhousie, a number of departments have global health programs, which can include international and other global health opportunities for residents:
All residents should follow the PGME guidelines on international education, found here: PGME guidelines on international education.
For residents in departments with no established global health program, the office of Community Partnerships and Global Health can help residents to make connections and explore opportunities for global health involvement. Residents are also encouraged to speak with their program director and faculty members in their department who are engaged in global health for advice and suggestions.
