Global Health Residency Track

As part of our commitment to expanding access to health care, investing in medical training and partnering in research worldwide, Mount Sinai offers a Global Health Track within the Categorical Residency. Our three most popular sites where we send trainees to are: Cameroon, Bangladesh, and Kenya, although other training areas are also available.

The program allows for Mount Sinai Medicine Residents with resources to pursue global health work during their PGY2 and PGY3 years. The curriculum focuses on the delivery of medical services, participation in medical education and research in resource-limited settings.

Program requirements are as follows:

  • Must be a PGY1 at the time of application
  • Must spend a minimum of six weeks at a resource-limited site
  • Prior global health experience is not required although preference is given to those who have demonstrated a commitment to this area of medicine.

Applicants interested in the Global Health Track should apply to the Categorical Residency. Once enrolled at Mount Sinai, residents are encouraged to speak with Jennifer Jao, MD, about entering this program. Interested applicants should make note of their interest on the application, so appropriate interviews can be arranged.
