Getting Started at your Institution
Women in Global Health Slides

Template Letter to your Dean
Use this letter to introduce the challenges that women in global health research face in their careers and begin the discussion to build institutional support.
UCSF Mentoring Resources
University of California San Francisco's Accelerate offers a Mentor Training Program designed to train the next generation of mentors. The MTP website has an extensive collection of resources ranging from "How to Build a Research Team" to "Communicating Effectively with Mentees."
Training and Leadership
How to Present your Research
This guide was created for MMED students in Tanzania to provide guidelines on presenting their research. They are basic guidelines for creating your powerpoint slides and presenting your research in a clear and concise manner.
Health and Safety
Sample safety plans
This is a sample worksheet that you can ask any trainees traveling to international sites to complete before they arrive to ensure they have a comprehensive safety plan.
Sample country-specific resource sheets
These fact sheets are available for any trainees traveling to Tanzania or Haiti as part of Weill Cornell Medicine. Although trainees will receive more extensive preparation materials, we offer this fact sheet for quick access to safety tips, important information, etc. Replace "Bugando Medical Centre/GHESKIO" with your own local institution and contacts.
We offer biannual self-defense seminars to medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty who travel to international research sites. If you are in the NYC area and would like to attend our next seminar or would like to set up a seminar for your own group, contact us by email.
