Global Health Opportunities
At Grant, we believe that a well-trained Family Physician is one of the most useful resources for the health of a community. When that community is isolated, remote, or in a developing part of the world, the skill set of a Family Physician trained at Grant becomes even more beneficial!
Not surprisingly, many of our residents have a passion for treating underserved communities, and this often extends to an interest outside our U.S. borders.
Grant currently sponsors International Electives available to residents with sites available in Ecuador, Peru, the Indian Himalayas, Papua New Guinea, Botswana, and Canada.
In 2017, Grant residents and faculty took a trip to Uganda to teach local midwives a course in Obstetrics and Neonatal Resuscitation, a project that has resulted in being published and will likely result in multiple future opportunities for Grant residents.
