 Indiana University – Interdisciplinary Global Health Program
Description: Indiana University has a rich history of successful international academic partnerships and is excited to offer more in-depth global health education and experience to interested residents.  The goal of the Indiana University’s Interdepartmental Residency Track in Global Health is to engage highly motivated residents from specialties of Internal Medicine, dual Medicine-Pediatrics, Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, and Family Medicine in order to facilitate better understanding of the health disparities that exist throughout the world.

            Participating residents will have opportunities to engage in both local and overseas electives that foster hands-on learning in global health.  The Global Health Residency Track also involves collaboration of residents through journal clubs, case-based discussions, and web-based learning modules.  Each resident will also be paired with a faculty mentor with commitment to global health.
