As an educational outreach effort, ASTMH makes materials available for medical schools and institutions of higher learning to host "Global Health Career Nights." If a school wishes to host such a night, ASTMH will provide:
An evening on campus can then be organized by the host school,
which includes a screening of the DVD — a riveting personal and
scientific saga — followed by an informal panel discussion led by
local experts on careers in global health and tropical medicine.
Not long ago, a similar evening at UCLA drew almost 100 attendees from medical and public health students to residents and faculty. The audience loved the film and welcomed the opportunity to interact with role models and mentors. Similar Global Health Career Nights have since been held at schools across the country.
If your institution is interested in holding a Global Health Career Night, contact ASTMH membership manager Buffy Finn.
