Programs that offer these 3 components of engagement in global child health will be doing a tremendous service in building future capacity. This will result in a resident body more comfortable in their roles as global physicians, whether working in their own community or contributing to other communities around the world. Despite the difficulties in international experience, those residents who have participated have enriched their lives. We, as educators, should do our best to support these opportunities.
