Global Health Track Core Projects

Since 1998, our residents and the Director of the program, Dr. Mori, have visited several countries doing consulting work and clinical rotations. With a strong commitment to addressing health disparities anywhere in the world, our residents experience family medicine as a universal profession relevant in any community or society in the world. Learn more about some of our global health experiences.
