Botswana Global Health Program in OB/GYN

Our OB/GYN Training Program

Ob-gyn Botswana electiveThe Botswana Harvard Partnership was established in 1996 between the Government of Botswana and the Harvard School of Public Health in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Botswana. The partnership facilitates clinical capacity building programs to strengthen the Botswana health system.

To further this aim, the BIDMC Department of OBGYN created a supervised clinical elective for US based residents in Botswana that is supported by an on-site faculty member to provide oversight and mentorship to rotating residents. This continuous presence on-site allows for dynamic support of clinical training needs in Botswana.
