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.
