Medical Footprints: Opportunities in Global Health

You may have plans to participate in research or training abroad. Do you hope to improve health in other parts of the world? Are you interested in creating or participating in programs to reduce health disparities? How do you turn these plans into action? Join NEJM Resident 360 to explore your options in global health.

Here are some of the questions we hope to address:

  • Are there specific organizations or opportunities to seek out in residency?
  • How do I secure time during residency to go abroad?
  • Do I need additional training or degrees to pursue a career in global health?
  • What does a career in global health look like?
  • How can I incorporate working abroad into my practice?
