Global Health & Equity

The Global Health & Equity Distinction Pathway aims to provide internal medicine residents with the skills to understand health disparities and serve as advocates for patient/population health both domestically and abroad. Through a combination of immersive clinical experiences in resource limited settings, public health didactics, and scholarly endeavors, Yale residents will be informed leaders in ethical and professional healthcare.

Our graduates will develop core competencies in leadership, advocacy, ethics, and social justice by:

  • Exploring definitions and building meaningful language surrounding the practice of global health
  • Understanding population health and geographic burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases
  • Learning to apply multidisciplinary and sustainable methods to issues impacting health globally
  • Demonstrate knowledge of evidence-based medicine and systems-based practice concerns in resource limited domestic and international settings
