Global Health

Mission Statement

The Yale Pediatric Global Health Track aims to provide Pediatric residents with an in-depth understanding of, and skills to address, the underlying factors that drive child health inequities in the US and world-wide.

The Global Health Track provides all Pediatric residents and students rotating through pediatrics: exposure to the core principles of health disparities in the US and world-wide; exposure to the ethical principles of global health; understanding of basic health needs of refugees and immigrants; understanding of the major causes of childhood morbidity and mortality world-wide

For residents enrolled as part of the Global Health Track we provide opportunities to develop more in-depth understanding, experience, and skills to advocate for, address, and manage the health problems and needs of the most vulnerable children in the US and world-wide. Through immersive clinical experiences, didactics, and scholarly work, these residents gain the experience and confidence to become leaders in pediatric global health.
