Through a competitive application process, two residents per year from the Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Programs are invited to participate in The Resident Initiative in Global Health at Tulane (RIGHT) Program. The RIGHT Program, funded by the Piper Global Health Fund, provides additional training to residents interested in a career in global health. By offering opportunities for residents to expand their medical knowledge and experience internationally, the program aims to add to the community of ethically-guided advocates for evidence-based holistic approaches to equitable care, locally and abroad.
Tulane Pediatrics has a history of training residents to become advocates for equitable care who are equipped with the skills to practice abroad. Residents who have graduated to work in global health opportunities include:

2020: Virginia Byron - Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Pediatric Tuberculosis Epidemiology through Socios en Salud (Lima, Peru) and the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School
