Welcome to the BRIGHT Pathway for Global Health Website! Welcome to the BRIGHT Pathway for Global Health Website! The Brown Residency International/Global Health Training Pathway (BRIGHT) began as an interest group in global health. Originally founded by 4 Med-Peds residents in 2009, the pathway has now expanded to include Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Med-Peds, Neurology, Pediatrics, Triple Board, and Ob/Gyn residents within the Brown University Graduate Medical Education programs. Through a collaborative, integrated approach, the program enhances resident exposure to the breadth of topics in global health, develops a community of global health scholars at Brown, and fosters mentoring relationships between residents and faculty.

The goals of the BRIGHT pathway include:

  1. Deepen understanding of global healthcare as it pertains to patients both locally and abroad with a particular emphasis on historically resource-poor nations and ethnic groups.

  2. Obtain experience in the practice of medicine in these settings.

  3. Pursue scholarly projects in preparation for long-term involvement in global health following post-graduate training.
