During the R-2 or R-3 years residents will have the opportunity for a 4-week international elective rotation. We are currently developing away rotation experiences in Central and South America. These are sites where Sea Mar Seattle Family Medicine residents and faculty have had good experiences. This year we had a resident join Providence St. Joseph Health Global Partnerships on a 4 week rotation to Malawi, East Africa. Dr’s. Ben and Mariel Bryden have recently joining our faculty after working at a residency in Lesotho, Southern Africa so there is another possibility in the making.
