Resident Requirements

Didactics

Didactics allow exposure to key competencies for pediatric global health designated by Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) and the ABP Global Health in Pediatric Education Guide. Didactics will entail:

  • Monthly global health noon conference
  • Global Health Grand Rounds
  • Monthly Global Health journal club/seminar
  • Other university-wide events/courses of relevance

Clinical Opportunities

All Pediatric Global Health Track residents should be exposed to local domestic global health through a variety of means (refugee clinic, Y-HEALER, Y-CHiC clinic, asylum medicine, Haven Free Clinic). A list of these opportunities is included in Table 1 along with their associated credit designation. All residents should complete 10 credits per year in the GHT. All Pediatric GHT residents should have an immersive clinical experience in domestic or global health.

Scholarship

All Pediatric GHT residents should be engaged in a scholarly project. The definition for this is broad and can include a case report, a QI project, a research project (given time constraints, this should be tied directly to an existing project in international sites). Residents can also fulfill this requirement through curriculum building of relevance to the different arms of the Peds GHT.

Scholarship also entails the strengthening of presentation skills and ability to communicate with different audiences. In addition, all residents should have a plan to disseminate their work with the local community. Lastly, all residents will give a noon lecture or Global Health Day luncheon presentation on their immersive clinical experience.

Mentorship

Mentorship is critical to optimizing the experience and success of GHT residents. Expectations of the mentor and mentee will be outlined clearly and evaluation of both provided. We will find ways of rewarding exceptional mentorship as a means of encouraging continued engagement of faculty. All residents will be assigned to a faculty mentor.
