International Health Rotation Elective

The Internal Medicine Residency program offers international elective rotations, which are intended to give the participating house staff member a more global perspective in cultural, social, economic and political issues of another country that may impact that nation’s healthcare system. Learning occurs through both independent study and hands-on experiences. Mentoring by the elective’s director or identified faculty helps the house staff member design the experience to meet the goals and objectives set out in International Elective Policy for Graduate Medical Education.

For questions regarding an international elective during residency, please contact the Residency Program at intmedres@uiowa.edu.
