Announcing our new Global Health Pathway with Dr. Annie Cowell!


The UCSD Internal Medicine Program will launch our new Global Health pathway in July of 2020!  This pathway is designed for residents who want to learn more about the global aspects of healthcare and/or are interested in pursuing a career in Global Health. Rotations in this pathway will increase our residents’ experience in working with underserved populations, public health, regional health care challenges, and infectious diseases. Dr. Annie Cowell of the Division of Infectious Diseases will be the Director of the Global Health pathway.

Residents apply to join the pathway at the end of their intern year.  Those who are selected will participate in rotations that highlight local global health opportunities with partner institutions in Mexico during their PGY2 year.  They will also spend 1-2 months on an international rotation which will be funded through the generous support of the Dr. Robert Schooley of the UCSD Division of Infectious Diseases.   UCSD has a longstanding educational and research partnership with the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) School of Medicine in Maputo, Mozambique, though residents can also select from a range of other sites (final list to be determined).  In addition, residents in this pathway will meet at scheduled intervals with expert faculty and their pathway co-residents to discuss issues in Global Health as well as their personal experiences.


Resident Spotlight

Dr. Alisha Kabadi

Hometown: Portland, Oregon
About me: I went to undergrad at USC and spent a year at the NIH assisting with vaccine research clinical trials before starting medical school at Temple University. I love traveling, both internationally and locally! My next trip goal is to go to Greece or Japan. In my free time, I like to workout at the gym, run in Balboa Park, hike and go to the beach with friends.
Why I chose UCSD: I absolutely loved my interview day at UCSD. The program administration was enthusiastic and friendly and made me feel incredibly welcomed during my interview day. It was very appealing to me that the residents got along with each other and all had a great sense of humor. UCSD offers residents the opportunity to explore various career paths and get involved in scholarly activity (medical education, research, etc) early on, which I thought was very unique to this program. 

Favorite place in San Diego - Windansea Beach
Favorite UCSD memory: exploring San Diego brunch spots and beach towns with my co-interns

Prelim perspectives

 

Why two interventional radiology residents chose UCSD Internal Medicine for their prelim year

"The internal medicine program at UCSD fosters a culture of support among residents and leadership to facilitate learning....my intern year felt less like a waypoint but rather an essential step to becoming an interventional radiologist."
- John Do, IR Class of 2024

 

"I enjoyed that the IM program here treated me as an equal compared to their categorical residents. We had the same responsibilities and rotations, same access to procedures, elective opportunities, etc.  The variety of patients, both medical and surgical, that the IM service takes care of at UCSD prepares you to excel "
- Zach Berman, IR Class of 2020
