WELCOME FIRST YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS!
We are looking for students with a passion for global health to join our group of scholars.
What does it mean to be a global health scholar? Here’s what we do:
- For the first two years, scholars meet 1-2 times per month for article discussions, documentary screenings, skills nights, and guest lectures. The curriculum is designed to expose scholars to a wide variety of topics and experiences that enable them to explore the ethics, challenges and opportunities in global health.
- In years 3 and 4 scholars meet intermittently between rotations to discuss interesting cases they have seen that are related to global health. Scholars in year 4 are given support in finding international rotations. For example, the Center for Health Equity has a research collaboration with the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences in Tanzania. Other sites include China and Rwanda.
- Organize talks and panels for the Dartmouth community, where we learn from doctors and experts involved with international health.
- Attend and travel to conferences together. Students have presented at CUGH, Unite for Sight, Global Health Day and more.
- Provide research support. Scholars collaborate and support each other while they pursue summer research experiences and elective rotations abroad.
- Participate in community service through local organizations such as the Burlington refugee clinic program.
Here’s what is required:
- Being a global health scholar is a four year commitment
- During the summer between first and second year, you are encouraged to complete a service or research project
- You are encouraged to complete a capstone project during a fourth year elective
- We require attendance for all guest lectures and speakers
