  • Global Health at St. Anthony Family Medicine Residency Program

    The past few years have brought on many new opportunities in Global Health for the residents and faculty at St. Anthony North. Residents have opportunities to explore interests in cross-cultural medicine, ranging from work with refugee populations here at home to week-long overseas mission trips to month-long global health rotations.

    Global Health Interest Group
    In the spirit of maintaining a passion for Global Health, the residency has developed a Global Health Interest Group. Our activities have ranged from discussions about refugee medicine to film nights to Ethiopian dinners! Some meetings are during the noon hour and others are during the evening. Meetings usually occur monthly and all are welcome.

    Centura Health Mission Trips
    Through Centura Health, our sponsoring institution, faculty members and residents have the opportunity to take part in medical mission trips abroad including most recently to Peru, Nepal and Haiti. We are working on plans to expand residency involvement in all three of these areas.

    Hôpital Alma Mater, Gros Morne, Haiti
    Along with Centura, our residency program is also working to create a partnership with Alma Mater Hospital in Gros Morne, Haiti. Plans include growing support both structurally and medically over the years through a sister hospital relationship with St. Anthony North Hospital. Members of our residency (both faculty and resident) have joined representatives from nursing, hospital administration, quality, infection control, the SAN foundation, and facilities to participate in trips advancing this partnership. Both resident and faculty involvement is planned to continue with this project in the future.

    Other Global Health Experiences
    In addition to the Centura trips, residents have carved out their own adventures in pursuit of medical service of indigent populations as well as opportunities for language learning.

    Refugee Health
    Residents have been able to engage with international populations locally at a refugee clinic started by a recent graduate.
