Care in Resource Limited Areas: Global Health Focus

The primary objective of the Pediatric Global Health Focus is to assist pediatric residents in preparing for and arranging opportunities in global health and advocacy. We accomplish this through collaboration across the UPMC campus and shared learning experiences.

Key Components

  • Global health lectures and discussions on clinical and research topics
  • Arrange an international elective rotation during the PL-2 and/or PL-3 years
  • Faculty mentoring for preparation for an international elective
  • Annual Pediatric Global Health Symposium that highlights speakers on global health and residents’ experiences abroad

Recent Resident Rotations

2020-2021 Update:  Due to the current COVID-19 global health emergency, international rotations will not be available this academic year.  Rotations through the Indian Health Services will be considered, if possible.


Indian Health Service Opportunities

Many of our senior residents have rotated at multiple sites on the Navajo Reservation including Chinle, Arizona, Tuba City, Arizona, and Shiprock, New Mexico.
