Dr. Anderson is one of the global health advisers available for Einstein students interested in working overseas. He worked in Haiti for six years prior to going to college and in Nicaragua prior to going to Medical School. He typically sponsors one or two Einstein students to work at an HIV clinic in Guatemala doing research during the summer between first and second years. Students analyze existing databases on topics such as needlestick injuries or TB transmission and then produce a poster or paper. In addition, they are exposed to a rich clinical setting where they can examine the clinical and social manifestations of the AIDS epidemic in Guatemala. There are similar opportunities available in other countries. Dr. Anderson can help facilitate students interested in the MS4 Global Health Fellowship and has helped students apply for international health fellowships.
