The UIC Department of Family Medicine Global Community Health Track is a unique opportunity for resident physicians in training to expand their perspective on disparity.  We take an in-depth look, through a longitudinal track spanning the second and third years, at issues surrounding community health and, specifically, health disparities.

We offer mentor-ship, support, and guidance in the broad discipline of global health for our resident Scholars to develop a Cynosure Project (focus topic project) that interests them most.  This longitudinal project spans our resident scholars' Community Medicine and Scholarship activities.  Our Scholars, as well, have ample opportunity to develop presentations, attend conferences, and experience global community health through an international experience.
