Residency Program Update:

Yale Pediatric Global Health Track Program

We are happy to announce that Marietta Vazquez has been named Director of the Yale Pediatric Global Health Track Program. The Pediatric Residency Global Health Track aims to provide residents with an individualized residency experience that prepares them for careers that meet pressing needs in global health, either in the USA or abroad. The program encompasses didactic education, international electives, and domestic clinical and advocacy experiences that foster interest in global health and provide residents with hands-on experience in resource-limited settings. Our track members engage in clinical, basic science, educational and/or public health research projects that address critical issues in the health of children both nationally and in the developing world. The program continues to aim to create and foster international relationships that are lasting, substantial, and beneficial not only to resident education but also to our international partners.

This year we are proud to announce that a record number of new applications were accepted to the Yale Pediatric Global Health Track - close to 50% of the current intern class! Please join us in welcoming our newest track members. We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank their mentors for their valued contribution to our program.
