The UMass Medical School has long supported international experiences for students, residents and faculty. The International Medical Education Office offers assistance to students and residents who are interested in international work. Over the years many pediatric residents have gone abroad for such experiences. They are strongly encouraged by our program leadership who has been involved with a health projects around the world for over twenty years.
During the past few academic years, our residents have participated in international rotations in Ecuador, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Haiti, Indonesia and Liberia. We have an established program in Liberia, as well as in Haiti and Indonesia. This coming academic year we are planning to send several residents abroad.
