Global Medicine

Family Medicine Residency Program 
International Medicine JPG 

Global medicine comes with unique opportunities and challenges. International environments are often even more dependent on a single family physician to see to all their health care needs than rural areas in this country. Skills ranging from OB to ER come into play on a daily basis. That's why we give residents interested in global medicine the opportunity to spend time treating refugees from around the world in our International Health Clinic and on elective rotations abroad. The Global Health Fellowship is available to residents seeking additional training opportunities designed for those pursing career paths in International or Travel Medicine or interested in obtaining certification in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Global Health curriculum at JPS and through our partnership with INMED, as well as additional online courses in tropical medicine and public health will contribute to the training of world-class physicians here at JPS. International rotations with JPS faculty may be selected to such diverse locations as Israel, Ghana, Thailand, Haiti and Central and S. America.
