Global health is one of the main strengths of Indiana University School of Medicine. Residents can travel to established partnerships around the globe for one-to-two month electives to participate in clinical care, research, and other advocacy work. In addition, Indianapolis has many international pediatric populations served locally.
Residents are able to rotate in a variety of settings, with the Kenya partnership as an exemplary model of partnership in care for decades. The Department of Pediatrics also has alumni, connections, and opportunities in Nepal, Lebanon and Central America. Finally, specialized training can be provided for those interested in a potential career in global health via the interdisciplinary global health track.
