In August, the Journal of Graduate Medical Education (JGME) published its first International Supplement. It highlights the successes and challenges of meeting today’s global health priorities and provides a forum for research and learning in post-graduate medical education (PGME) around the world, fostering further research and dialogue. We talked with Halah Ibrahim, MD, MEHP, who served as one of the guest editors for the supplement.
