Global child health: An essential component of residency training
Paediatrics and Child Health (East Africa)
International child health experience has become an essential component of residency training. Over the past few decades, increased globalization has led to a “shrinking” of the world. Substantial numbers of families are immigrating to North America, and numerous children from “third-world” countries are being adopted by North American families.1 Changes in the health of people in one area of the world can quickly impact the well-being of people globally. Thus, it is increasingly important for our clinicians to be well trained in recognizing and managing health conditions not seen routinely in the past.
