Eighteen MS1 students and two CHA/PA students per year will be selected through a formal admissions process for the Global Health Track (GHT) per year. The GHT is best suited for highly motivated, adventurous students who have demonstrated leadership skills, adaptability to new situations, and superior critical thinking skills. Students with experience working with other cultures and with a well-conceived, thoughtful plan for incorporating global health into future career endeavors are preferred. However, it is NOT necessary to have ANY global health or travel experience for admission to the track.
First year medical students interested in applying to the GHT must complete the following:
- Register and pass IDPT 6665: Introduction to Global Health (Wednesdays 1-3 pm after the Human Body Block). Students may register during the open enrollment period in early September.
- Submit a completed
form and curriculum vitae to the Global Health Track Coordinator (application deadline for 2017 is September 11). You will be notified of your track acceptance on October 3.
