At IU School of Medicine, global health is about changing and improving health around the world, particularly in resource-limited places. The school’s international footprint in health care practice, policy and research spans more than ten countries on four continents.
Fellows in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery trauma program as well as their faculty mentors participate in two week international rotations, traveling to either Eldoret, Kenya or Hangzhou, China.
While overseas, they engage in case conferences, give presentations and scrub in daily to assist in surgery. The international experience has been culturally enriching and very popular among the fellows and faculty.
