Global Health Pathway for Residents and Fellows

Our Mission

To develop academic leaders in global health dedicated to reducing human suffering caused by health disparities. As a distinguished program that incorporates multiple departments, the Global Health Residency/Fellowship Pathway at Duke delivers tailored postgraduate training experiences integrating specialty-specific research opportunities, masters-level didactic training, and close mentorship to develop careers in global health.

“I’m interested in Cardiovascular Disease in Subsaharan Africa. Duke’s Global Health Pathway is unique. They have really great resources and have been able to provide me with support for my research project. And also a full protected year to live abroad and work abroad and do independent research.”

“There are certain obsticles that you face in the field that you cannot simulate in the classroom. One of the things that I value about being in this setting is my interaction with my team. I think the knowledge sharing as gone both ways. I hope that I’ve taught them some skills and knowledge. At the same time, I’ve learned a lot from my team.”
