Abstract
Increases in international travel, trade, and immigration have resulted in the movement of more than 2 million people daily across international borders and have enhanced global interdependence for health. Simultaneously, the mosaic of US society has expanded to accommodate increasingly diverse cultures, languages, and health values; these have contributed to the growing interest of US medical students in international health. Never has it been more important for future health care professionals to understand and experience health in a global context. Nonetheless, US medical schools have been slow to address students’ increased interest in international health training. While 96% of US medical schools taught about tropical medicine and international health in 1945, only 22% included any formal curriculum in international health in 1990. Although the number of US medical students participating in overseas electives increased from 6.4% in 1984 to 18.2% in 1999, most US medical students arrange their international electives independently, and fewer than 30% participate in programs to prepare them for their international experience. Recognizing the growing disparity between student interest in international health and limited training opportunities, three medical schools and the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) Foundation joined together in 1995 to develop an International Health Fellowship Program (IHFP) for US medical International Family Medicine

The movement of 2 million people each day across national borders and the growth of international trade are inevitably associated with transfers of health risks including infectious disease contaminated foodstuffs terrorism and toxic substances. Due to rapid international travel emerging and drug-resistant infectious disea...

Background Globally, health service leaders and managers have a critical role in strengthening health systems. Competency frameworks for health service managers are usually designed to describe expectations of good performance of a health manager within a country-specific health sector context. However, a growing number of health service management roles operate beyond a country-specific level, with managers requiring a global perspective and the skills and knowledge to work effectively across a...

There has been an exponential increase in the offering of short-term international field experiences in recent years in response to student demands for global health opportunities. Pre-departure preparation is an essential component to equip trainees with the adequate safety, wellness, and cultural competence needed to engage in a meaningful and mutually beneficial elective. This review seeks to quantify the plethora of pre-departure preparation training available to public health, clinical, and...

Background: Short-term global health electives (STGHEs) have become increasingly common, with evidence showing educational and clinical benefits for short-term learners (STLs). Despite increased recognition that STGHEs should be mutually beneficial for host sites and STLs, evidence demonstrating the impact on international host preceptors is lacking. Objectives: To understand international host preceptors’ perceptions regarding benefits and burdens of hosting STLs. Methods: Focus group discussio...

Few global health experiences include intentionally-directed interprofessional training. We aim to prospectively evaluate the impact of a global health elective in facilitating interprofessional education (IPE) and promoting cultural sensitivity. We included in our study, medical and nursing students who participated in the 2015 and 2016 cohorts of the Nicaragua Global Health course. The course consisted of a 12-week curriculum, and included an in-country immersion where students were organized ...

Within health professional education around the world, there exists a growing awareness of the professional duty to be socially responsible, being attentive to the needs of all members of communities, regions, and nations, especially those who disproportionately suffer from the adverse influence of social determinants. However, much work still remains to progress beyond such good intentions. Moving from contemplation to action means embracing social accountability as a key guiding principle for ...
