Global Health

The Department of Psychiatry in partnership with the Hubert-Yeargan Center for Global Health and the Duke Global Health Institute offers residents the opportunity to participate in several Global Health training programs and activities, including:
 
Global Health-Psychiatry Pathway
Duke Psychiatry Residents in PGY-2 are eligible to apply for the Duke Global Health-Psychiatry Pathway.  This specialized training track dedicated to developing academic leaders in global health begins in PGY-3 and extends psychiatry residency training by three to six months. Core activities of the pathway include 9-months of coursework towards earning a Master of Science in Global Health degree and up to 12-months of in-country international experience conducting mentored clinical research.  To date, Global Health-Psychiatry trainees have completed projects in Moshi, Tanzania and Durban, South Africa.

Global Health Electives 
 
There are two ways to engage in Global Health Electives:
  1. Work with Dr. Gagliardi to arrange a global health elective at a site with whom we already have a Training Letter of Agreement, such as Auckland, New Zealand, or the Institute of Mental Health, Singapore.  These sites typically host residents for 6 to 12 months.
  2. Work with Dr. Gagliardi and a faculty advisor to design a global health elective at a site with whom we will need to write a new Training Letter of Agreement.
