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.

University Travel Policy requires all faculty, staff, and residents traveling abroad for University purposes to register their travel. See our website for more information and to register.
