Up to two residents per year can match in our Global Health Track. Residents in the Global Health Track have dedicated time overseas in both the second (6 weeks) and third (up to 12 weeks) of residency, in order to participate in clinical work, research, and to build a partnership with a chosen site. The track is customizable, based on the interests, goals, and preferences of the individual resident (e.g., for residents with an extensive research background, there is an option to complete the final 2 years of residency in 3 years, alternating 6 months clinical training with 6 months of research time). The track includes dedicated time at SCVMC each year, continuity clinic at our Fair Oaks site (where residents care for the underserved patient population of East Palo Alto), and focused educational opportunities such as the 2-week Intensive Global Health Course and the 2-day Intensive Global Health Research Retreat (see below). More Residents in the Global Health track participate in Global Health Journal Clubs (8 per year, including joint Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Journal Clubs), and have the opportunity to attend a host of lectures pertaining to global health across the medical school and the University. Global Health Track residents also have the option to pursue a funded Masters Degree during the year following residency, which allows them to gain a skill set as they launch their career in global health (e.g., Masters in Epidemiology, Masters in Public Health, Masters in Public Policy, Masters in Global Health).
