Views from Abroad
Einstein’s Global Health Fellowship Program has installed its annual photography exhibit depicting locales where Einstein students, faculty and staff have traveled abroad. The display will hang along “Main Street” in the Forchheimer building through the end of October, and Jill Raufman, the program’s director, is hosting an array of activities this fall to introduce new students to global health opportunities and to welcome returning students and faculty.

At Global Health Night, which was held in September, returning global health fellowship awardees and faculty discussed their experiences taking part in nine different fellowship programs. These ranged from a medical Spanish program in Peru to a community health project in Uganda, to a physical medicine & rehabilitation project that featured prosthetics printed using Einstein’s own 3-D printer, which were fitted to a patient in Jamaica. Approximately 60 members of the Einstein community enjoyed dinner and conversation while comparing summer experiences.
Upcoming events include a Student-Faculty Meet and Greet on Tuesday, October 17, through which medical students can meet faculty and hear about opportunities for global health fellowships. And on Saturday, November 11, Ms. Raufman will host a special Global Health Networking Event, offering medical and public health graduate students from throughout metropolitan New York the opportunity to meet people who work in global health at locations all over the world.
