Welcome to Orlando Health Internal Medicine Residency Global Health


Our Internal Medicine Residency has had a Global Health elective since 2011. Every year our associate program director, Dr. Kwabena Ayesu, takes a group of residents to Ghana. During this time abroad, residents set up clinics in impoverished communities to provide direct medical care. Residents also experience what medical training in Ghana looks like and have the opportunity to round in local hospitals. The people and patients inspire us to continue our work to bring healthcare directly to these medically underserved populations.

Participation in this Global Health elective is a privilege and a highly sought-after rotation. It is a wonderful experience for individuals looking to gain hands-on experience, understand different cultures and make a positive impact on global health. The program is very popular and expanding to include additional opportunities throughout the year.
