Global Health Track
The MedStar Georgetown Psychiatry Residency Training Program is part of the Georgetown University Global Health Track (GHT) that aims to educate residents in the complex components of global health and how they apply to all patient populations, globally and locally, with the ultimate goal of creating culturally competent and compassionate clinicians who are able to better advocate for their patients. The GHT involves a longitudinal curriculum with residents from internal medicine, medicine-pediatrics and psychiatry. Lectures focus on various global health issues, including syndemics, ethics, law, policy, and other topics. Residents will also complete (2) one-month away electives, either domestic or international, and a scholarly project.
Interested psychiatry residents must apply by January 1st of their PGY2 year and those selected will participate PGY3-4 years. The first group of residents graduated from the track in June 2018 and gave the experience rave reviews.
Please see the Georgetown University Global Health Track website for more information.

The Clinician Educator Track was launched in the 2017-2018 academic year. The goal of the track is to prepare a cohort of residents for careers as clinician-educators. The track is offered starting in the PGY2 year and includes didactics, mentorship and a scholarly project. Two residents have selected the track and were assigned a mentor and a scholarly project.
