There are numerous opportunities for MUSC residents and fellows from different departments to get involved in global health activities. While some programs have structured tracks, others may have a faculty member with global health experience. Below you will find links to information and contacts in each department who can share more information about their respective programs.
Pediatrics Global Health Residency Track
The Pediatric Global Health Track is a longitudinal experience in global child health - available to pediatrics and medicine-pediatric residents - that incorporates one-on-one mentoring, clinical experiences, competency-based curriculum, didactics, monthly journal clubs, and an international clinical elective (or a stateside global health experience) in the final year. Trainees will gain a better understanding of the general principles related to the health of children in underserved communities both at home and around the world. More information can be found on the MUSC Pediatrics Residency website. Contact: Andrea Summer, MD, Professor of Pediatrics firstname.lastname@example.org
International Emergency Medicine Residency Track
The Emergency Medicine Global Health Residency Track allows resident physicians the opportunity to focus on global health during their three years of Emergency Medicine residency. Under the mentorship of the faculty within the Emergency Medicine Division of Global Health participants have access to global health opportunities, global health research and scholarly projects. Residents have access to monthly journal clubs as well as tropical medicine, global emergency medicine and global health didactic sessions. During their residency, participants complete a minimum of one scholarly project in global health and take part in local or international clinical outreach in order to gain experience providing care to vulnerable and underserved populations. The track provides the education, experience and mentorship necessary to prepare physicians for future careers in global health.
