Abstract Globalization has opened access to distant regions of the world and increased awareness of global health disparities [1–3]. This heightened awareness, coupled with the rapid expansion of treatment to over 5 million people with HIV worldwide [4], has captured the imagination of a growing generation of health professionals who are motivated to make a difference across international boundaries. Their enthusiasm
has fueled an unprecedented growth in academic global health programs in higherincome (HI) countries partnering with programs in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) countries [5–7]. How do we manage this explosive growth to most effectively and sustainably reduce the global burden of disease?
