In addition to their clinical expertise, our faculty helps educate fellows of the Emergency & Disaster Global Health Fellowship Program to meet the timely medical needs of any situation that limits access to essential health resources and medical care such as disasters, poverty, or geographic displacement.
Additionally, our division offers a Visiting International Professorship Program that provides selected global colleagues with the opportunity to participate in UT Southwestern learning, clinical observation while educating our Department faculty and fellows about their own country’s health and medical infrastructure.
