Perspective piece: The Minnesota model: A residency global health track framework

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Residency programs are increasingly responding to the growing demand for global health (GH) education by forming dedicated GH tracks. These tracks incorporate a targeted curriculum, support best practices surrounding GH electives such as predeparture preparation and post-return debriefing, and encourage meaningful engagement with international and domestic partners. The University of Minnesota's pediatric residency has had a formal GH track since 2005, and although they have shared several curricular components in the literature, they have yet to provide a comprehensive summary of their GH track. In this article, the authors provide a thorough description of their evolving GH track model, highlighting outcomes and sharing free resources, with the goal of providing a concise, replicable GH track framework for educators seeking to provide more formal GH education within residency programs.
