Global Health Medical Rotation

The global health rotation provides an opportunity for medical students and professionals to improve the health and well-being of children and families in medically underserved communities. 


Our program provides U.S. and Kenyan participants with an invaluable exchange of knowledge. We currently send two residents at a time from Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine for a four-week period to the Ng'enda health center and Thika Level 5 Hospital, where both residents and healthcare workers have expressed enormous gratitude for these rotations. The clinical and cultural gains from these experiences are invaluable to medical professionals as well as to patients who benefit from the implementation of programs like Helping Babies Survive. We prepare medical students and professionals for successful integration into Kenyan health centers so that they may best serve the needs of healthcare workers and patients, as well as gain the most rewarding learning experience possible themselves. Our program is available and ready for expansion to new schools looking for an organized and experienced global health rotation.
