A wealth of global health opportunities exist for Penn-affiliated post-graduate health professionals. Here you will find a number of opportunities for professional growth in global health including: the Center for Global Health Scholars program, career development, international clinical training and orientations, events, and seminars.

CGH Associate Scholars

The Center for Global Health encourages all UPHS & CHOP trainees to sign up for the Penn Global Health Associate Scholars program. By signing up with our Scholars program, you will engage with our extraordinary global health thought-leaders and practitioners in various ways based on their affiliation with CGH and professional interests.

Career Development

Throughout the year, CGH offers career development workshops and mentoring with faculty. Please contact us for more information about future career development events.

International Clinical Training & Orientations

The Center for Global Health manages the annual application process for Botswana rotations for Internal Medicine residents. For residents in the Global Health Equities Track, please contact Carol McLaughlin for more information.

For all other departments, clinical responsibilities and schedules of post-graduate trainees must be closely linked to program directors within clinical departments. International clinical activities must be sanctioned with the appropriate rotation agreements in place by UPHS' Graduate Medical Education office. Please contact your program director for more information on global rotations.

For residents and fellows traveling to Botswana for clinical or research work, the Center for Global Health offers comprehensive pre-departure orientations plus logistical planning and support. Please contact Andie Yost for more information.
