“I can sincerely say that I would not be where I am today without the Stanford Medicine residency track in global health. My rotations in social medicine, homeless patient outreach clinic, and my time in Uganda and Rwanda helped me understand the scope of challenges faced by vulnerable populations worldwide, empowering me to advocate on their behalf while inspiring me to develop research projects to best address their entrenched health problems.”

What truly sets apart the Stanford Global Health Track is the robust mentorship under which all residents are not only encouraged to carve out a personalized career pathway within global health but also provided opportunities to develop a unique skill set to help you achieve your career goals. I entered Stanford undifferentiated in my career pathway and unsure of how to best combine my passion for clinical medicine and medical education with a career in global health.

The time spent in rotation at Kiruddu National Referral Hospital was one of the most influential, impactful, intellectually and emotionally challenging, and formative clinical experiences I have had. As I begin to reflect on this rotation, the initial themes that stand out to me are the challenges of working in a low resource setting with very little patient financial support, the differences in medical the medical training system, and the continued opportunities for improvement within the medical system.

“The Global Health Track took my internal medicine training and pushed it beyond national borders. I worked in hospitals in Uganda and Colombia and had a great time exchanging knowledge with the house staff working in these settings. I also gained so much from the VA Underserved Health rotation and the VMC Underserved Health rotation that taught me how to deliver care to hard-to-reach patients with difficult social situations.”
