Global Health Curriculum

The era of globalization has led to significant changes in health care, but medical education in the developed world has remained domestically focused. Canadian pediatricians are caring for growing numbers of new immigrants and refugees and their training should reflect these changes. The Global Health Curriculum at CHEO Research Institute is an 18-member expert working group dedicated to developing and evaluating global child health modules. Topics include global child mortality, under-nutrition, fever in the returning child traveler, and children and youth new to Canada (refugee and immigrant health). These modules have been received extremely well on both the national and international levels, and will be integrated into the existing pediatric residency curriculum across Canada. They will also be extended to other specialties such as family and internal medicine.
