In his current focus on educational and health policy initiatives, Harsh Sule, MD, MPP, calls upon his experiences related to development work in a variety of countries (Azerbaijan, Ghana, and Sierra Leone) and working with an NGO (International Medical Corps).
His current international work is related to distance learning and medical education in Ghana. Locally, he is involved with helping to develop global health efforts at New Jersey Medical School via leadership of its Office of Global Health and the global health distinction program. Sule also works with colleagues in the Department of Emergency Medicine to promote medical education related to social determinants of health as they affect our patients in Newark, New Jersey.
- The Real World of Global Health — The first graduates of New Jersey Medical School’s global health distinction program talk about what they’re thinking and feeling as they careen into the medical profession during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Addressing Barriers to Surgical Care in Rural Ghana — Owing to a severe shortage of surgeons and surgical training in rural Ghana, many people are suffering, and dying prematurely, from treatable conditions. Faculty doctors Ziad Sifri and Harsh Sule created an online training program to teach surgical skills and diagnostic methods to clinicians 5,000 miles away.
