Global Health Programs Committee

Office of Global Health’s Global Health Programs Committee meets on a regular basis to provide guidance about the current and prospective sites and policies for the medical students, residents and faculty abroad. They oversee the Yale/Stanford J&J Global Health Scholars Program and related policy development with input from Stanford. Members coordinate and present at the annual Pre-Departure Orientation Day for departing Global Health Scholars. In May 2011, the GHP Committee coordinated the first Global Health Grand Rounds and Symposium.  It was so well received that it is now being held on an annual basis.  Members represent various sites with whom the Office has partnerships, residency programs for Internal Medicine and Primary Care and other opportunities for GH involvement.
