Global Health Electives

We support Canadian health professional trainees who choose to think globally about their health care work.
Every year, the Centre for International Child Health provides funding to several trainees (e.g., midwifery, occupational and physical therapy, medical residents) who pursue global health electives focused on children (neonates to adolescents) as part of their approved training program. Trainees can be students in any health care discipline: doctors, nurses, midwives, occupational therapists, and more.
