Haiti: Training a New Generation of Family Physicians

When it launched in 2011, the St. Marc family medicine residency was PIH’s first formal training program for medical specialists in Haiti, made possible through a partnership with sister organization Zanmi Lasante, Haiti’s national medical school, and the Ministry of Health.

While CES staff facilitate this transition through introductions and regular site visits, outgoing doctors smooth the path for their colleagues by remaining in the community for as many as four weeks to bring them up to speed on patients’ cases and help them adjust to life in a remote rural location.
