Mary Duke Biddle Clinical Scholars Program This program funds medical students for a period of six weeks to do a rotation at one of the program's sites in Malawi, Bangladesh and Nepal. (This is for pediatric residents and fellows only)

Stanford International Emergency Medicine Fellowship Recognition of the vital role emergency medical services play in the health care of a country has prompted a burgeoning interest in International Emergency Medicine (EM). Many developing nations struggle to provide emergency medical care to their citizens. Adequate infrastructure is often lacking, and even in areas with significant financial and medical resources, emergency medical personal training is limited. Furthermore, EM is often not recognized as a medical specialty overseas, making it unfeasible for interested care providers to obtain the skills required to deliver effective care. 

Yale/Stanford Johnson and Johnson Global Health Scholars Program This program funds residents across all departments to work at one of the established sites for a six-week rotation. The established rotation sites are: South Africa, Rwanda, Uganda, Liberia, and Indonesia. The establishment of a new site in a Spanish-speaking country is in process.
