The Global Health Office is involved in local and international development programs, where faculty, residents, students and staff learn first-hand the health priorities of other communities and work with our partners to find solutions.
“The Global Health Office was instrumental in my medical training and I think we're incredibly lucky to have it because not every school does.”
