Regardless of the track chosen, the main focus of the Paul Farmer Global Surgery Fellowship curriculum revolves around advocacy, 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 who are working as part of the Global Surgery Team.

Serving in resource-poor settings is an integral part of the Fellowship experience. We are currently working in over a dozen countries on over 40 projects. Please click here to a project brochure highlighting some of the work being done by Paul Farmer Global Surgery Clinical and Research Fellows and Research Associates.

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.”
