Global Health Scholars

Global Health Scholars

Gloabl Health Scholars in Internal Medicine In 2007, Washington University Department of Internal Medicine began providing international experiences in Bhutan and Eritrea to nurture residents with Global Health interests.

Dr. David Windus coordinated these educational experiences which were sponsored by Dr. Jack Ladenson. Residents participating in these rotations reported positive impact on their sensitivity to social and cultural factors that influence health outcomes. Sustained interest in these international experiences has led to the creation of Global Health Scholars in Internal Medicine. This program expands and formalizes global health education in our internal medicine residency.

We are deeply sadden at the news of Dr. Carlos Mejía's passing. Dr. Mejía was an incredible person/doctor. We send our thoughts and prayers to Dr. Carlos Mejía's family and friends. Dr. Carlos Mejía was the Director of the Department of Internal Medicine and Chief of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Roosevelt Hospital in Guatemala. This is a great loss to the medical and academic societies. He will truly be missed.
