Goals, Learning Objectives, & Outcome

Goals:

The Emory University School of Medicine (SOM) Emory Global Health Residency Scholars Program (GHRSP) was established in 2012 and includes a year-long curriculum (consisting of monthly lectures, seminars, and discussions) and a one month clinical rotation in Ethiopia. The program aims to enhance and expand ongoing collaborations between Emory and Ethiopian institutions, in particular Addis Ababa University (AAU) and its main teaching hospital The Black Lion. 

Learning Objectives:

The one month rotation in Ethiopia will focus on clinical education and teaching and is carried out in a collaborative fashion between the appropriate departments at Emory and AAU. The rotation should be structured to provide the Emory resident or fellow with learning opportunities as well as opportunities to "give back" and provide education and teaching to residents, medical students and other trainees at AAU. To culminate the program, Emory global health residency scholars will make short presentations about their work and experiences.

Outcome:

Upon completion of the track, residents will be awarded a certificate of completion and graduate with a distinction in Global Health from Emory University School of Medicine.
