Global Health Learning Community


Welcome to the website of the the Global Health Learning Community of the Association of Pediatric Program Directors (APPD).

Here you will find resources developed and shared by pediatric educators charged with preparing residents for work in and for patients from low and middle income countries. We work together, sharing best practices and resources, to advance the science and implementation of global health education for pediatric trainees to better prepare them to serve children in resource-limited settings globally AND locally.
