Kaitlin Rose

Medical Student / Resident Representative University of Michigan


I went to Oakland University for my undergraduate education and then Central Michigan University for medical school. Currently, I am a PGY-2 at the University of Michigan. I was introduced to global health after participating in a Global Medical Brigade trip to Panama where we provided medical care to a community with limited access to health care. Since that time, I have been learning how to maximize health care access and humanitarian aid to low-resource communities. Additionally, during residency, I have been working with one of my mentors to research direct medical and surgical support and emergency medicine curriculum development in association with the war in Ukraine. Overall, I believe I am a good fit for the Resident Representative position for GEMA because I want to make a profound global impact in health care and I am passionate about involving learners at all levels, from medical students to residents, in these activities. I am also in the SAEM Climate Change and health interest group and have learned with my participation there how to effectively be involved as a resident in an interest group/academy.
