We are seeing more physicians participate in short-term international medical work, owing in part to a greater awareness for global inequities in healthcare. What types of volunteer opportunities are available to physicians interested in making a difference overseas? What are some of the most common challenges and benefits of working abroad? Dr. Parminder Suchdev, assistant professor of pediatrics and global health at Emory University and a medical epidemiologist in the nutrition branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, talks with host Dr. Jennifer Shu about the personal commitment and professional preparations needed to make your journey a success.
