Target Audience and Needs

Global health programming across Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) is rich and diverse with mature global partnerships and high-quality training for learners. Lack of coordination of educational activities, however, limits the reliable exposure to the core competencies of global health practice, such as ethics and cross-cultural communication.  The goal of this series is to leverage program-specific expertise to emphasize these competencies and provide leadership development by sharing knowledge, networking, and collaborating.  The global health competency framework proposed by the Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) project, administered by the Public Health Institute with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), will be adapted for this series.  Developed for global health professionals, this competency framework aligns with the goal of developing global health leadership skills in our target audience of physicians, advanced practice providers, fellows, residents, and any other healthcare providers interested in global health at BCM and TCH.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify the characteristics of an ethical global health partnership.
  • Describe the impact of social determinants of a specific health problem.
  • Evaluate the impact of a capacity strengthening intervention.
  • Demonstrate best practices for cross-cultural communication.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
