The UNC Resident Global Health site in Sakai is now open to any resident that requests access from the OGHE Assistant Director, Shay Slifko ( This site contains 19 global health modules, which include video lectures by UNC faculty, additional articles/readings, and quizzes. The site is based on a course originally developed for medical students, but we are in the process of adding more modules and updating materials and readings to better suit residents.
