The educational sessions embedded in our curriculum include approximately six noon lectures per year on global pediatric health care. Faculty members with different expertise facilitate discussions and simulations covering all aspects of global health care, from infectious diseases, to ethical cases, to cultural competency. Utilizing their training in the Global Health track, third and fourth year (med peds) residents will also help facilitate.
In addition, there are four academic half days each year. Education during these sessions will include cases and hands-on workshops that train residents to think outside the box in tactile and practical ways to provide care in resource-limited settings.
Fellows are encouraged to attend sessions that fit into their schedule as participants or facilitators depending on previous global health experiences.
