SECTION OF GLOBAL HEALTH
This section has been created in response to the growing interest of hospitalists looking to contribute to global health in a meaningful way. As a group, we are committed to sustainability, supporting local capacity and “best practices” through education in global health and clinical care delivery to our partner sites. Our mission is to develop a group of trained hospitalists dedicated to high quality and sustainable health care delivery in resource-limited settings globally.
Our partnerships provide a unique opportunity to enrich individual hospitalists’ development as physicians and global citizens. Projects are based on development of longitudinal relationships at carefully selected sites. This structure provides the framework for volunteers to gain foundational experience in regular engagement that is a critical feature of successful work abroad.
- Oversight of medical care delivered during all of Hillside’s clinical activities including mobile clinics and the home visit program.
- Precepting medical/physician assistant students and medical residents during patient encounters for all Hillside clinical activities.
- Facilitating the medical education of Hillside medical/physician assistant students and residents through patient encounters, talks, case presentations, community health program, etc.
