Distinction in Global Health will join the other Distinction programs offered to medical students: Distinction in Research, Distinction in Medical Education, and Distinction in Service to the Community. This prestigious and rigorous program will support and recognize Robert Wood Johnson Medical School students who show exceptional interest, leadership, and commitment to global health initiatives. Students will distinguish themselves by assuming a significant level of responsibility in the collaborative planning, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of a focused, sustainable global health initiative. Students who are accepted into this program and who fulfill all requirements as certified by the DGH committee will receive diplomas at Commencement stating that they have graduated with "Distinction in Global Health."
Students must meet the minimum requirements of the global health didactics program during their M1 or M2 year. The DGH Committee provides this timeline as a general guide for students.
Continue project planning, individualized study to prepare for the second global experience.
