Global Health Track

Global Health Leadership Track

UVA dermatology residents have the opportunity to participate in the University of Virginia’s Global Health Leadership Track (GLHT), a program that prepares physicians to become leaders in global health practice, research, policy and education.

Current Residents

Didactic learning

Residents have the opportunity to participate in 2-week intensive courses in Tropical Medicine and Policy and Practices in Global Health through UVA during their PGY-3 year. Round table dinners with guest speakers are held quarterly as well as a monthly Global Health Journal Club and International Rounds.

International Clinical Rotations

GHLT participants perform a 4 week rotation at an international site of their choosing. Various opportunities are available, including the American Academy of Dermatology Resident International Grant as well as Health Volunteers Overseas. Alternative sites in underserved communities in the U.S. (such as the Indian Health Service) may also be considered.

International research

GHLT residents identify research needs abroad or at home related to global health and participate in related projects.
