Global Community Health Track

The UIC MedPeds Global Community Health Track is a unique opportunity for resident physicians to expand their perspective on disparity both locally and globally.  In collaboration with the Department of Family Medicine and the Department of Internal Medicine, we take an in-depth look, through a longitudinal track, at issues surrounding community health and health disparities.  The track includes didactic lectures, journal clubs, scholarly projects, and international or community elective experience.  We offer mentorship, support, and guidance in the broad discipline of global health for our resident scholars to develop a focus topic project that culminates into their international/community elective.
