Medical Student Global Women’s Health Program
Interested medical students are invited to apply to the Department’s Global Women’s Health program at the end of their 2nd year. This comprehensive two-year program begins during the 3rd year of medical school, when the student is matched with a 2nd year Ob-Gyn resident in the Global Women’s Health Track and a Faculty mentor within our Division. This team will then proceed through the program together as a mentoring unit. Working collaboratively, they will design and complete a research study at one of the several sites where faculty is working. In addition, our medical students and residents participate in the Global Women’s Health Seminar Series, an on-line course which introduces them to the wide range of issues being confronted by healthcare providers in the developing world.

Global Women’s Health Track for OB-GYN Residents
At the end of their first year of residency, residents interested in global women’s health can opt to enter the Global Women’s Health Track for the remaining 3 years of their training. This track provides structure for the resident, guiding and preparing them for a future career as an obstetrician-gynecologist in global health. At the completion of this track, the resident is expected to complete a research project suitable for publication.
Global Women’s Health Track for Maternal-Fetal-Medicine Fellows
Upon acceptance into the Maternal-Fetal-Medicine fellowship in our Department, fellows enter into one of several research tracks: clinical, critical care, public health, prenatal diagnosis, laboratory-based research, or global women’s health. While the clinical block months are standard throughout the 3 years, as a fellow in our global women’s health track, up to 6 months of the 18 months of research elective time can be spent in the field conducting global health research. The majority of this work is typically completed during the third year of fellowship. MFM Faculty involved in global women’s health provides research supervision to the fellows.
