Rising MS IVs at UT Health Science Center San Antonio are invited to apply for a $2,500 scholarship to travel to an approved site for an international health experience during the 2014-15 Academic Year. Recipients will participate in a one-month (including travel time) International Medicine elective, INTD 7003. This 4.0-credit elective is supervised by Ruth Berggren, MD.
These scholarships represent an opportunity to learn about the culture and practice of medicine in a resource-poor country. You'll experience medicine in an environment greatly different from what you have seen in the U.S. and you'll learn about the role of technology vs. the necessity for astute physical diagnosis skills. The Paul Brand International Medicine Scholarship is only for use to travel and learn at an approved site.
The MS4 elective INTD 4030: Preparing for Global Health Work is required. This two-week elective course will be available this fall, and is scheduled during the first two weeks of Period 5.
