Global Health

Global Health Education Programs

A global health experience has a profound effect on physicians and other health care providers, both personally and professionally. For students and faculty at IU School of Medicine, the Center for Global Health serves as an anchor for global health curricula and a resource for students and faculty in any discipline who wish to engage in global health.

Those who pursue this experience benefit greatly. IU School of Medicine collaborators published a study comparing long-term career choices of those who participated in a global health program with those of a control group. The study concluded that the participants of a global health program were more likely to be generalists working with underserved populations, to be cost-conscious in their health care decision making, and to be involved in global health, public health or public policy. IU School of Medicine residents and students consistently describe their global health experience as life-changing and rate the opportunity as one of the premier experiences of their medical training.
