What Is This?

The UIC Emergency Medicine Global Community Health Track is a unique opportunity for resident physicians in training to expand their perspective on disparities, both locally and globally.

In collaboration with the Departments of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and MedPeds, we take an in-depth look, through a longitudinal track, at issues surrounding community health and health disparities.

What Will This Expose me To?

The track includes didactic lectures, journal clubs, scholarly projects, and an international elective experience.

We offer mentorship, support, and guidance in the broad discipline of global health and community-based participatory research for our resident scholars.

When Can I Apply?

Residents can apply for the track in the fall of their intern year.
