International Outreach Program

The International Outreach Program of St. Joseph’s Health System saves lives in developing countries by training their doctors. The International Outreach Program is a non-profit organization that partners with universities, medical schools and teaching hospitals in countries that need more doctors, particularly more specialists and sub-specialists. Through its partnership with McMaster University, the program gives medical students and doctors the academic knowledge and clinical skills they need to prevent illness, restore health, save lives—and train other doctors to do the same. Trainees also acquire leadership, communication, negotiation and teaching skills that help them generate lasting change in their communities and countries.
