Our Global Health Fellowship at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West is a unique two-year fellowship that focuses on training fellows to develop the adult and pediatric clinical skills and knowledge to address the global impact of a broad range of conditions.
Fellows will study infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, tropical and emerging infectious diseases, along with acute and chronic diseases, violence and injuries presenting to emergency rooms in resource limited settings. In addition, they learn how to care for international travelers before and after their travel.
Fellows explore the impact of these infectious diseases in New York City’s own diverse, global population that frequently seeks medical care at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West.
The fellowship provides the opportunity to acquire necessary skills and professional contacts to facilitate a career in Global Health by coordinating activities between international clinical and research rotations, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West Departments of Emergency Medicine, Infectious Diseases/Travel Medicine Clinic, HIV Comprehensive Care Clinic, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, as well as partnering with a number of national and international NGOs.
