Presentations at Scholarship Day
Director: Daniel DeUgarte, MD UCLA Center for World Health
The Global Health Pathway is designed for medical students interested in the wide variety of career possibilities in global health arenas. These career paths include global health research, clinical work in global locations, specialized education and/or training leadership at academic medical centers, and staffing in U.S. government agencies (e.g. CDC, USAID, NIH), multilateral organizations (e.g. United nations), or philanthropic or nongovernmental organizations (e.g. Gates Foundation). The Global Health Pathway will provide opportunities for students to network with colleagues involved in global health, to explore career options in global health, and most importantly, to facilitate longitudinal mentorship and activities with UCLA faculty members and global partners working in this area. Upon completion of Pathway requirements, students will receive a 'Certificate of Completion of the Global Health Pathway'. All participants in the pathway will complete a scholarly global health project or a longitudinal field experience. Students typically join the Global Health Pathway at the end of their first year of medical school.
