Elective Rotations

TanzaniaOur department supports the residents' interest in exploring their clinical and/or research interests.  Some of the opportunities from the recent past are included below, some residents wish to provide care in low-resource settings at international locations, others stay stateside and participate in away rotations, and some elect to spend their month in San Diego expanding their research portfolio or focusing on a clinical niche.

To assist each resident with the financial burden often associated with traveling abroad, the department subsidizes a percentage of the total expenses incurred. Additionally, residents may use their education stipend towards elective expenses. During the third year of residency, our residents are granted 4 weeks to do an elective. The section of Global Women’s Health provides coordination of responsible international educational exchanges, conducts relevant international research, and leads sustainable capacity building bi-directional global collaborations within the department.  We are working together to build relationships with three international programs in an effort to create sustainable partnerships.
