The University offers a variety of extended and post-graduate options for your residency experience:
Global Health Opportunities
Each year many of our residents choose to do a global health elective during their second or third year of residency. Residents who have a long-standing interest in global health may elect to be part of the Pediatric Global Health Leadership Track during their residency.
