The purpose of the Global Health Scholarly Concentration is to train globally-minded physicians in the practice, research, and study of health and its determinants. Our goal is to prepare students with the knowledge and understanding to improve health equity worldwide through robust integration of global health education throughout their undergraduate medical training, and to provide students the resources to attain competencies in global health practice.
