Throughout the four-year experience, PEM-GH fellows have the opportunity to attend other global health learning opportunities here at the University of Utah.  In addition to those listed below, PEM-GH fellows have the opportunity to attend and deliver topic lectures on GH at fellows conference, pediatric residency morning reports, and pediatric residency noon conferences.

  • Introduction to Global Health Principles Course: Fellows help current instructors teach an introduction to global health course to medical students obtaining their global health certificate. This course is held in eight lectures in the fall semester.
  • Global Pediatric Series: Fellows sign up to lecture or attend the Global Pediatric Series lectures, which is a series of global health education for pediatric residents during their noon conferences. These lectures occur four times per year.
  • Reasoning without Resources: Fellows can present at or attend this series of global health-themed case discussions that occur monthly during our pediatric residency morning reports.
  • Global Simulation: The fellow leads a low-resource global simulation for residents in the global health track to help prepare them for their global health elective. We hold these simulations twice per year.
