Global Health Fellowship
two year fellowship focuses on training the fellows to develop the adult and
pediatric clinical skills and knowledge base necessary to address the global impact of:
1) infectious diseases – HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, tropical and emerging infectious diseases
2) acute and chronic diseases, violence and injuries presenting to emergency rooms in resource limited settings, and
3) international travelers seeking pre/post travel medical care.
Fellows explore the impact of these infectious diseases in New York City’s own diverse, global population that frequently seeks medical care at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and West Hospitals.
The fellowship provides the opportunity to acquire necessary skills and professional contacts to facilitate a career in Global Health by coordinating activities between international clinical and research rotations, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s/West Departments of Emergency Medicine, Infectious Diseases/Travel Medicine Clinic, HIV Comprehensive Care Clinic, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, as well as partnering with a number of national and international NGO’s.
Fellows also have the opportunity to obtain a Masters of Public Health at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
