There is a well-established elective rotation in international travel medicine, during which you see patients for travel consultation, immunizations, and evaluation of recently returned travelers with travel-related illness.
Additionally, the Mayo International Health Program helps residents and fellows pursue elective rotations providing medical care to underserved international populations in well-planned and mentored settings. The program provides financial support to help defray travel and basic living expenses for those selected to participate.
