Sarah Kesler, MD

Director, Global Medical Education and Research (GMER) Program

Sarah Kesler’s clinical work focuses on Critical Care Medicine. She practices primarily at University of Minnesota Medical Center and Fairview Southdale hospitals. Her academic work focuses on Global Health and Humanitarian Response. 

She was the program director of the University of Minnesota Humanitarian Simulation. The program was a full-scale field exercise of a humanitarian emergency. It prepared prospective humanitarian aid workers and volunteers to work in humanitarian emergencies and allowed participants to better understand the experiences of refugees and internally displaced persons. The course was offered as a one-credit elective through the school of Public Health, and as a learning experience for people from the wider community. 

She also directs the Graduate Medical Education and Research Program, which serves to mentor medical students who want to incorporate international experiences into their medical school experience.
