Clinical Cibookare in Low-Resource Settings: Preparing Providers and Fostering Leaders
The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) has designed this multi-media, case-based curriculum to prepare clinician learners to work in under-resourced settings with appropriate preparation for the clinical challenges facing the facility and the socioeconomic and cultural challenges underlying the patient’s experience. Support for this project was made possible by the APGO Medical Education Endowment Fund Grant Program.

Global Women’s Health Medical Trainee Objectives
In 2014, APGO established a global health task force under the leadership of then President Amy “Meg” Autry, MD and Susan Raine, MD, JD. This task force was combined with APGO’s Diversity and Inclusion task force in 2016.

Given the ever-increasing interest in global health and participation in global health experiences by learners, the task force established a definition of global women’s health and created competency based objectives for global women’s health, both domestically and internationally. Feel free to use these objectives for your students or learners and adapt them for your institution or situation.

These objectives were created by members of the task force:

  • Amy “Meg” Autry, MD
  • Susan Raine, MD, JD
  • Chi Chiung Grace Chen, MD
  • Anne Dougherty, MD
  • Margaret Larkins-Pettigrew, MD, MEd
  • Saifuddin Mama, MD, MPH
