Within Stanford’s immense network, researchers, innovators, and clinicians can be found collaborating on projects in global health all over campus, reaching across schools and department lines, and blurring the borders between fields. For residents, this network presents a world of opportunity. We created the Global Health Residency Track to bring all of these opportunities together into one program, giving residents a doorway to Stanford’s many offerings in global health.
Stanford’s Global Health Internal Medicine Residency Track is a unique program which allows a global health career-oriented resident to get into the field during training and be mentored one-on-one in the research methodology of their chosen field. Stanford’s Center for Innovation in Global Health customizes a program over the three years of training to help medical students work towards a world that values social justice and health equity.
This year we are pleased to welcome our newest resident, Natasha Mehta.
Dr. Mehta is committed to the vision that every person in the world receives quality health care. She completed her undergraduate work at the University of California Los Angeles, earned a Masters in Global health at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), and attended medical school at the University of Illinois. There, her research focused on new interventions for community HIV testing in Indonesia and developing a curriculum for medical students before they travel for global health-related work. She plans to continue her research in global medical education and addressing barriers in access to care during residency.
