International Health Sites

REACH sites are available for residents to spend a month on elective. Each residency program must approve visits to international sites. REACH can help coordinate the experience.

Why are there no photos of people on our website?

REACH holds our residents on electives at international sites to the same standards as we do when they are working at our own hospitals, clinics, and practices. We respect patient privacy and do not use their photos in our media.

REACH is also actively working to decrease medical tourism and reduce one-time electives to support our goal of building long-term partnerships with our international colleagues.

The following sites have established contacts with resources and support for resident electives.
