Collaborations & Initiatives

Global Medicine has a long tradition of providing educational programming for an active and engaged global population in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. We are particularly proud that many of our community initiatives are resident-led and resident-driven, because we believe that community involvement is a key component of global health training. 

Refugee Clinical Listserv

Global Medicine maintains a listserv for health and public health professionals who are involved in the clinical care of refugee and immigrant populations. All are welcome to join this online conversation among experts. You must have a Google account in order to make a "join list" request, but you can use your regular email address to participate.

Tufundishane Collaborative

Tufundishane (tu-fun-deh-SHAWN-ay) is a Swahili word that means "let us all teach one another". The Collaborative aims to:

  • Facilitate a collaborative, reciprocal teaching and learning opportunity for U of M residents and physician trainees (called assistant medical officers) in Arusha, Tanzania
  • Fund a continuous faculty presence at Selian Lutheran Hospital who will act as a preceptor to visiting U of M residents
