GLOBAL HEALTH

The UMass Medical School has long supported international experiences for students, residents and faculty. The department of pediatrics offers assistance to students and residents who are interested in international work.  Over the years many pediatric residents have gone abroad for such experiences.  They are strongly encouraged by our program leadership, a team who has been involved with a health projects around the world for over twenty years. During the past few academic years, our residents have participated in international rotations in Ecuador, Haiti, India and Liberia. Residents can also participate in a monthly global health dinner seminar with residents from other disciplines.
