We are proud to have committed faculty and residents who are contributing to the field of global health in meaningful ways. Our division has several faculty members with ongoing global health and international emergency medicine interests. Our mission is to provide our residents and students with the skills necessary to contribute to humanitarian and global health projects, and to provide mentorship and guidance to help them develop their own interests and careers in global health.
We are committed to capacity building in low resource settings and humanitarian disaster response, improving leadership in the field of global health, and development of health metrics and evaluation programs. Our faculty are actively contributing to research and critical evaluation of global health interventions, and creating a curriculum to prepare our residents to effectively deliver care in disaster and low resource settings.
