At WellSpan York Hospital we offer a global health track for our residents as well as the residents at WellSpan Good Sam. Through this track residents have the opportunity to complete cross-cultural experiences. These include both local and international learning opportunities. Our residents have travelled to Guatemala, Kenya, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Egypt, Iraq and Mauritania. We also have an opportunity to work with the Indian Health Service at the Zuni Comprehensive Community Health Center in New Mexico. Through these opportunities, residents gain invaluable experience while helping to improve the lives of children and adults living in poverty. The track offers monthly Global Health Grand Rounds, journal club with a global health focus, and the opportunity to attend global health conferences. Providing global health training not only benefits the global community and develops quality physicians; it ultimately benefits our own community.
Global health programs help increase the number of physicians who care for the underserved in local communities after they graduate
