Programs in Building Community

Residency Program Leadership Council

The Center for Innovation in Global Health brings together residency program leaders focused on global health education through the Program Leadership Council. The Council meets twice each year to provide updates about current global health education offerings, to share resources, and to identify potential collaborations.

The Residency Program Leadership Council (PLC) aims to build collaboration across residency and fellowship programs, supporting the professional development of global health leaders. We meet bi-annually to share best practices for clinical away rotations, bilateral exchange and global health careers for trainees.
