Regardless of the track chosen, the main focus of the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship curriculum revolves around education, research, and the provision of surgical care. Both Clinical and Research Fellows are expected to work collaboratively and participate in the education and training of other residents and medical students that may be working as part of the Global Surgery Team.

Training Sites

Serving in resource-poor settings is an integral part of the Fellowship experience. Both Clinical and Research Fellows in the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Program will have the opportunity to partner with underserved populations in at least one of the following communities.

Additionally, we have also collaborated with the Harvard Medical School Center for Global health and Delivery-Dubai which is medical care provision to the poor in all arenas of global health. Within global surgery they are funding crucial quality improvement studies at the Indus Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. They were key players in defining the scope and breadth of global surgery through continued funding, and hosting the final meeting of the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery. They are located in the Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center in Dubai, UAE, and are uniquely placed to increase global health access in the Middle East.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
