Global Health Pathway Open for Application – Due December 15
UNC offers a broad range of experiences in global health clinical care and research, as well as didactic activities covering myriad topics in the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and others. In order to enhance the professional development of Med-Peds, Pediatrics, and Internal Medicine residents who are interested in pursuing global health careers, a Global Health Pathway was established and welcomed its first cohort in 2020. The Pathway includes four key components: mentorship, didactic curriculum, clinical experiences, and scholarship. Residents will receive a Distinction in Global Health at the completion of residency training. More information is available on the Pediatric Education Global Health Pathway page.
Residents apply to the Pathway in fall of their Intern year to facilitate second year scheduling of clinical electives. Applications to the Pathway open on November 1. Application and instructions can be found here. Applications are due on December 15. Residents will be notified of their acceptance in early January.
The UNC Pediatric Global Health team has developed a fund to promote scholarship for our GH learners!
Any learner (medical student, resident, or fellow) who is engaged in pediatric global health work may apply for a maximum of $1000 per year, to be used toward conference attendance for presentations, manuscript publications, or other support of their scholarly work. The funds will not be used toward travel. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and up to five awards will be made annually, with the decision made by the GH Finance committee.
