Abstract

Global finance, trade, communication, media, politics, and the cultivation of overseas relationships to advance U.S. interests are among the forces that have engendered what we now know as globalization, a historical development towards worldwide interconnectedness. While manifest in diverse realms, globalization powerfully influences human health and health services and poses challenges for physicians and other health care professionals. To review these challenges and their ramifications, a workshop was convened at Howard University to consider the implications of global health trends for medical education. Highlights of the discussion are summarized here.
