UNC Department of Pediatrics
Global Health Program

Mission Statement

The UNC Pediatric GH program seeks to train the next generation of pediatricians to be globally-minded, regardless of where they practice, to advocate for worldwide health equity and to improve the health of children in low-resource countries through research, education, and clinical care.


To be a leading site for training pediatricians in global health and to be the academic home of internationally recognized researchers in global health.

The UNC Pediatric Global Health team has developed a fund to promote scholarship for our GH learners!

Any learner (medical student, resident, or fellow) who is engaged in pediatric global health work may apply for a maximum of $1000 per year, to be used toward conference attendance for presentations, manuscript publications, or other support of their scholarly work. The funds will not be used toward travel. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and up to five awards will be made annually, with the decision made by the GH Finance committee.
