The Global Health Residency Program
The Global Health Training Center offers an intensive curriculum and an extended period of field work for residents in a variety of specialties.
Interns from Mount Sinai Hospital’s Departments of Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Psychiatry and Emergency Medicine residency programs are eligible to apply for a global health specialty track during their PGY1 year. Successful applicants participate in a 10 month global health seminar series designed to impart basic knowledge about global health issues, as well as research design and practical skills for global health field work. During this year GHRT residents are also matched to a GHC field site for their senior research/public health project and begin to work with a research mentor on the design of this project. In PGY3, GHRT residents spend 6-8 weeks at their field site implementing their project.
For residents who are not in the GHRT but are still interested in global health work, opportunities exist for global health electives at GHC partner sites and can be discussed on an individual basis with the GHC faculty.
