Residents in our eight residency programs regularly participate in international experiences. They may be based on current international relationships established by the university and residency program, or customized to a trainee's interests and goals.

Planning an international rotation takes time, so we recommend you start early. Residents should allow 12 months for pre-departure preparation.

A current and completed affiliation agreement is required prior to starting.
