My Questions from Day 1 at Bellagio
1. What is the point of teaching all North American medical students about global health? What next? Do they become direct care providers globally?
2. When we talk about student learning objectives in global health, what about community objectives and long-term benefit to the teaching communities?
3. Where is the balance when it comes to resource-poor institutions giving time to teaching North American medical students? If the Northern students go on to be global health advocates, is that benefit enough to the Southern teaching institution?
4. What happens when you have all North American, European and Israeli global health experts sitting in a room discussing “global health”?
