L to R: Chuck Schubert (Cincinnati Children's Hospital), Nicole St. Clair (Medical College of Wisconsin), Cindy Howard (University of Minnesota), Jacquelyn Kuzminski (MCW), Sabrina Butteris (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Laura Houser (UW-Madison)

In April 2013, Cindy Howard and colleagues presented a poster: Global Child Health Educators: Local Collaboration To Optimize Global Education at the 2013 annual meeting of Association of Pediatric Program Directors (APPD).

The poster described the planning, organization and scholarly products that have resulted from our collaborative efforts as part of the Midwest Consortium of Global Health Educators. Formed in 2009, the Consortium brought together global health education programs with residency tracks from:

  • Cincinnati Children's Hospital
  • May Clinic College of Medicine
  • Medical College of Wisconsin
  • Northwestern University
  • Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital
  • University of Minnesota
  • University of Wisconsin - Madison
Our institutions share competencies, knowledge assessments and curriculum resources as part of an innovative way to achieve effective global health education across pediatric residency programs.
