Dr Dominique Mortel (PGY3) will continue her training after residency at John Hopkins University School of Medicine in the Global Health Fellowship in Lusaka, Zambia.
The Johns Hopkins Global Neurology Fellowship is a one-year program designed to give fellows first-hand experience in (1) caring for patients with neurological disorders in a resource-limited setting; (2) developing clinical neurology training for medical students, internal medicine residents, and neurology residents in a resource-limited setting; and (3) completing clinical and/or epidemiologic research relevant to a resource-limited setting. Fellows will spend one year in Lusaka, Zambia at the University of Zambia School of Medicine and the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) working in conjunction with Dr. Deanna Saylor. At the end of this one-year program, fellows will have obtained clinical, education, and research exposure in a resource-limited setting as well as significant experience in developing and working within cross-cultural teams. These skills will enable the fellow to successfully pursue a career in academic global neurology.
