Forum for International Health and Tropical Medicine (FIHTM) is a student group whose goals are to bring medical students together with the rest of the global health community at Wash U and to provide funding for students to go abroad during their time in medical school. FIHTM funds trips such as 6-10 week internships over the summer after first year, one-month rotations during fourth year, and annual spring break trips. FIHTM also partners with the Global Health Scholars Residency program to organize health fairs and events involving the international communities right here in St. Louis. If you are interested in exploring the world while in medical school, check out FIHTM!
