Global Health Mentoring Program

The Center of Global Health Initiatives’ (CGHI) Global Health Mentorship Program connects medical students and residents with experienced physicians who share their passion for global family medicine. The goal of this program is to provide the spark for a long-lasting relationship between a student or resident and a family medicine educator who has extensive global health experience. A student or resident (or a small group) is matched with an experienced physician or physicians based on geographic regions or areas of global health interest.  

Who should apply

  • A family medicine educator wishing to mentor a student or resident through this program
