International Opportunities


The University of Pennsylvania has a very robust clinical activity at the Princess Marina Hospital, the main hospital Courtyard between two hospital wardsin Gaborone, Botswana, with the constant presence of Penn faculty, residents, and medical students. Supporting this activity is a Penn funded administrative support core, which takes responsibility for housing of the Penn community at the Princess Marina Hospital. Complementing the Penn clinical activity are numerous ongoing research projects related to HIV/AIDS at both the Princess Marina Hospital and the University of Botswana. The two Doris Duke International Clinical Research Fellows will participate in these research opportunities in Botswana.  More info about the Botswana-UPenn Partnership program in Botswana is available at
