Dear Pre-health advisor,

The Medical School for International Health is an innovative, four-year, North American-style medical school that incorporates global health coursework into all four years of the medical school curriculum. The MSIH prepares physicians to address the impact of cultural, economic, political and environmental factors on the health of individuals and populations worldwide.  As part of their global health education, MSIH students complete an eight-week Global Health clerkship.  This two month clinical rotation takes place in a developing country or in an under-resourced clinical setting related to global heath.  Below is a link to a short video about the experiences of several MSIH students who completed their Global Health clerkships in Sri Lanka this past spring. Please forward it to any students who may be interested in global health and medicine.

In addition to the Global Health clerkships, the MSIH global health curriculum is innovative and comprehensive.  MSIH students complete their first two years of study in Israel at Ben-Gurion University, studying the basic medical sciences and body systems.  They also take a year-long course on Clinical and Global Medicine, as well as various global health modules.  This is accompanied by weekly clinic days, working with diverse underserved populations in Israel. Year III clinical clerkships are conducted in Israel, at Soroka Medical Center, and other facilities.  In the third year, students also participate in the workshop "Cross Cultural Communication."  Year IV clinical electives and clerkships are taken at Columbia University and its affiliates, Mount Sinai, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ, the University of Kentucky and at other institutions in the United States and Canada.  Prior to graduation, students complete the capstone Global Health clerkship in countries such as India, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Peru, Mexico and Ethiopia. 

In terms of residency, MSIH students match in highly competitive residency programs in both the United States and Canada.  In 2015, our graduates were offered residency placements at leading institutions such as Icahn School of Medicine (Mount Sinai), the University of Virginia, Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center and the University of Washington Affiliated Hospitals. This past years graduates will be completing their residencies in family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, neurosurgery, pediatrics and psychiatry.  For more information on residency placements, you can click here to view the MSIH residency placements from 2015-2002.
