Ob/Gyn Curriculum Project
An Ob/Gyn Global Health lecture series is scheduled each February/March after CREOG. Each year we choose a particular topic and region of the world on which to focus, and use that focus to discuss broad issues in global women's health. The series includes a journal club and lectures by local experts from organizations like PATH, ITECH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Health Alliance International.
UW Integrated Residency Global Health Leadership Course
Based in the Global Health Department and School of Public Health, this is a 1-month course designed to teach residents interested in careers in Global Health (GH) the skills necessary to become future leaders in this field. The course is available once per year and can be taken during the 1st or 2nd ambulatory block. It is comprised of several different components, including field visits to local GH organizations, lectures, case-studies and small group discussions, and focuses on three major areas:
- Global Health Knowledge
- Global Health Leadership Skills
- Clinical Skills in Resource-Limited Settings
Global Health Educational Training in International Topics (GHET-IT)
An international residency group that hosts lectures and seminars on global health topics several times a year. http://depts.washington.edu/rfgh/curriculum/
Global Health Elective Experience
Residents in good clinical standing have the option to travel either to Mexico or Kenya (see Elective Sites) for their third-year elective block of 4 weeks to participate in clinical service. Residents work with a faculty mentor at the UW and at the host institution to design an educational lecture to be given during their visit. They complete both objective assessment tools and self-assessment exercises during the rotation.
Global Health Research
Several faculty members particpate in international women's health research projects that may offer opportunities for resident involvement to fulfill the resident research requirement.
