Annually in September, the Global Health Office offers lunchtime talks to first year students called “Planning for a Global Health Elective” to introduce them to Global Health international elective opportunities.  If you missed the talk, please view the video below.  You are welcome to email ghfomd@ualberta.ca with your questions.  Helpful information can also be found in the power point presentation "Global Health in Medical School" created by Connor Lengkeek, a medical student who went to Fudan University, Shanghai and Patan Academy of Health Sciences, Nepal in the last 2 years.Students interested in global health electives may find the book Hoping to Help:  The Promises and Pitfalls of Global Health Volunteering by Judith N. Lasker a helpful resource.
