The Department of Anesthesiology at the University of California San Diego is pleased to announce the inception of a one-year fellowship in Global Health with an emphasis on Policy. Since this is a non-ACGME certified fellowship opportunity we have a great deal of flexibility in helping the fellow achieve their goals in this endeavor. This offering comprises international field experiences, didactics and research.
The fellowship aims to provide exposure to the range of options in global health field work, from supporting a residency program, to working alongside anesthesia assistants with very limited formal training, to providing services where none are available. The goal is to help build capacity and improve safety in low resource settings. We will involve the fellow in the planning process so that they understand the behind the scenes work and the importance of the social and political context in which our partner hosts operate. We hope to cultivate leaders who can formulate and potentially implement sustainable solutions of real value to underserved populations around the world.
