This space is dedicated to those interested in learning more about our newest pathway: Global Medicine. Everywhere on Earth, those interested in healing and helping others care for their patients. These environments vary dramatically, and the study of Global Health is focused on learning how to provide for patients, and work within the different healthcare systems across the planet.
What do we get to do?
There are 3 main components of our pathway
Focused Global Medicine Education
International Elective in Maputo, Mozambique

With COVID-19 & Future Plans
Currently, due to both local and international travel restrictions afoot with the COVID-19 pandemic, some components of our pathway have been put on hold. However, this has not stopped us from continuing to develop them! Our leadership is working with our partners in Maputo, as well as healthcare facilities in Tijuana, Mexico & other countries in order to continued to expand the diverse experiences we can offer our residents!
While the state of the pandemic has made it necessary to curtail certain aspects of our learning, we also see it as an opportunity to create experiences and build relationships that may not have been possible before.
Thank you for learning a bit more about us! We wish you luck, and hope to see you on your interview trail!
