With an increasing burden of neurological diseases worldwide, such as stroke and dementia, there is a growing need for educating trainees on recognition and assessment of neurological conditions in resource-limited settings. A scarcity of neurologists and diagnostic resources often limits timely and accurate diagnosis of neurological conditions in low-and-middle income countries. Existing experiences for US trainees include travel to resource-limited settings for global health clinical electives to participate in education, research, and clinical care while learning from local physicians. However, there is also a critical gap in ensuring that trainees from resource-limited settings learn from clinicians with expertise in neurology creating a bidirectional balanced exchange that benefits trainees from both institutions. Speakers will discuss UNC’s bi-directional global health rotation for neurology residents and fellows.   Dr. Diaz & Dr. Rubinos
