David A. Zlotnick, MD Memorial Scholarship

The David A. Zlotnick, MD Memorial Fund was created in the Department of Pediatrics to encourage, develop, and support the volunteerism of Stanford medical students interested in pediatrics, pediatric residents, and pediatric faculty members, with a preference for volunteerism in Central and South America. The Fund aims to provide Zlotnick Scholars with experience, understanding, and satisfaction for lifelong contribution and leadership in the interest of children’s health.

One scholar interested in a rotation in Central and South America will be selected among the MDB applicants each year. No separate application is required.

Global Child Health and Diversity

Under the leadership of Dr. Bonnie Maldonado, Academic Director of Global Child Health and Senior Associate Dean of Faculty Development and Diversity, our team is passionate about the intersection between diversity and global child health. So, too, are our residents!  Dr. Ezinne Emeruwa (PGY-II) discusses what that looks like to her.

Introducing our Global Child Health Equity Fellows

Andrea Ocampo and Sofia Ali have been named the inaugural Global Child Health Equity Fellows (GCHEF). They will be selected to work alongside faculty and staff in the Stanford/Packard Global Child Health (GCH) program over the summer of 2017. 

With funding from the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity's inaugural Diversity, Innovation, and Inclusion Fund, the GCHEF program seeks to support Stanford undergraduate students who contribute to diversity, broadly defined, of the future global child health workforce.
