International Scholars Program

The International Scholars Program hosts international pediatricians, nurses, and other health care allied professionals to observe our clinical activities and multi-disciplinary teams, and interact with our families and communities.

Because of government regulations, international scholars may only observe clinical activities, but may not provide clinical care. International scholars may participate in bedside teaching, grand rounds, journal clubs, case management meetings, protocol review and development, and other non-patient care activities.

The International Scholars Program is a non-credited short term program; it cannot be used for any academic credit, or fulfill requirements for specialty training. An attendance letter will be provided if requested at the end of visit.
