"I was drawn by the Global Health Concentration because it offered me structure, guidance and the necessary mentorship to gain knowledge and skills in a global context, I got the opportunity to meet and shadow extremely talented physicians and surgeons during my two-week elective. As an observer, I saw a variety of cases including head wounds, fractures, cases of pneumonia, post-surgical infections, labor and delivery and tumor removal.” Lucia Chehade, MD/PhD.
There are many opportunities for Faculty of Medicine learners to develop their global health training internationally, locally and across Canada. We encourage learners to get in touch with the Global Health Program.
There are also many online resources to support global health education.
