Webinar: Considerations & Guidance When Sending Students Abroad

With ever-increasing globalization and surging interest in global health there is growing interest on the part of medical students and medical schools to incorporate international electives into medical education.

Cross border medical exchanges enable students to work with different patient populations, develop cross-cultural understanding, and learn about health systems and approaches to medical care in other nations.

This webinar will examine student selection, preparation and ethical considerations when sending health professions students from the Global North to LMIC countries, common challenges and solutions cited by institutions in the Global North that host international visiting students from LMIC countries, and overall best practices and resources for study abroad.

Webinar: Global Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Disease knows no borders. CDC's global activities protect Americans from major health threats such as Ebola, Zika, and pandemic influenza and adverse economic impact. CDC detects and controls outbreaks at their source, saving lives and reducing healthcare costs. As importantly, CDC helps other countries build capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to health threats through its work. The knowledge and lessons learned from CDC's work abroad are critical to our public health efforts at home, and to protecting Americans.
