Thinking Global, Acting Local

GHT Outreach in Colorado

While the GHT provides a large focus on education and successful projects outside of the United States, there is also a need for physicians with a global focus and cultural competencies here in Colorado and the rest of the United States.

In addition to supporting international projects, the GHT also seeks to support students working locally.  Some of these efforts include encouraging students to enroll in refugee care didactic courses and working in refugee clinics in the Denver metro-area as a student with some of our University partners.

Refugee education and care are currently not mandatory, but the Steering Committee and the Global Health Track Director and Associate Director are working to incorporate this into the curriculum and this type of education may become a required activity for students in the GHT in the future (for the Class of 2018 at the earliest.)  ​
