This is the link where residents interested in applying for the global health residency track can apply; for non-resident applicants, there is a yearly survey sent out including trip dates and locations (DR or Haiti) and we try to comprise balanced, interdisciplinary teams from those who are interested.
Scholarly elements include didactic coursework for the global health residents, an interdisciplinary summer institute (starting summer 2017) aimed at students & trainees who are interested in participating in global health efforts, and a global health symposium (this year, it will be held March 6-9th) open to Rush students and employees as well as the greater Chicago community as a chance to hear expert lecturers on topics of interest in global health as well as updates from peers on current efforts in global health (via a poster & abstracts).
Institutional support from RUMC, also work closely with Community Empowerment.
