  • Allowing senior residents interested in global health to work on a resident-designed clinical, outreach/educational or research project in a developing nation.
  • Allowing senior residents to become immersed in different modalities of cancer care available in a particular region, as well as a greater appreciation for the culture and attitudes related to cancer and oncological care.
  • Fostering a global perspective of oncology and encourage ongoing outreach, research and progress in developing countries.
