There is consistent interest from medical trainees in high-income countries in academic global health education (GHE) programs. Academic scholarship in global health has traditionally been linked to longer-term programs. However, most programs for medical trainees offer short-term experiences in global health (STEGH). These experiences are typically brief and clinical, and present logistical and ethical challenges for producing scholarship. Given challenges inherent in global health medical education, educators should cultivate ethically sound scholarship prioritizing power, privilege, and decision-making within local communities. Utilizing the framework of community-engaged scholarship, GHE ethics guidelines and examples we present suggestions to guide scholarship in GHE.
