Section for Resident Physicians

Increasing numbers of resident physicians are pursuing activities in international health. However, establishing professional connections abroad may not be an easy process for residents whose programs do not offer international electives. The resident section of GlobalMedicine.Org was created to facilitate international health care experiences for residents. Below are a number of internet links that may be helpful. However, we need your help in identifying additional rotations, research assignments or other educational opportunities. Please forward to us (GMNinfo@mms.org) the names of any contact physicians or organizations you may be aware of.

THANK YOU, and check back frequently!
