MSIH has a growing community of 650+ alumni who practice medicine in the U.S., Israel, and abroad. More than 50% of our alumni continue to practice global health work following residency, whether locally or internationally. Many alumni serve patients of diverse backgrounds and healthcare needs. In addition to caring for patients in clinical settings, many work in academic and research settings. MSIH alumni also work with the CDC, WHO, NIH, U.S. Air Force, Peace Corps, and NGOs in Malawi, Uganda, and other rural and urban locations worldwide.
The MSIH Alumni Association serves as a vital organization to engage alumni of the Medical School for International Health and support their needs for collaboration, networking and professional development, while promoting and advancing the mission of MSIH.
The Association provides MSIH alumni with a network to pursue their social and professional goals, and remain connected to MSIH and current students through alumni events and programming, while providing the opportunity to give back professionally and philanthropically to the University.
We would like to welcome the new MSIH Alumni Association President, Dr. Zevidah Vickery from the MSIH Class of 2005. Dr. Vickery has served as an MSIH alumni mentor, visiting lecturer and an Alumni Council member. Currently, she is the Director of Cervical Dysplasia Screening & Management Program at Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio (PPGOH). In this role, Dr. Vickery supervises the organization’s nurse practitioners, receives referrals for colposcopy and LEEP, and manages the more complex patients. Her professional interests include women’s health, reproductive health, and physician advocacy, among others.
We would also like to thank Past President, Dr. Leslie Gonsette, from the MSIH Class of 2007. Dr. Gonsette served as President for four years and is looking forward to moving from Alaska to New Zealand.
The MSIH Alumni Association provides a network for alumni to pursue their goals, remain connected and give back. MSIH alumni lead by example as physicians around the world who are making a difference through medicine.
