Depending on the area students choose to emphasize, the Master of Global Health (MGH) will prepare students engage in the global community as clinicians, researchers, managers, developers and as policy consultants. Students will develop a deep understanding of the multiple factors that shape health and healthcare across the world and the necessity of working on interprofessional teams to develop community-based solutions in underserved and resource-poor communities.
Taught by a diverse faculty with global health research and practice experience, students will complete 38 credit hours of varied and innovative coursework. Through participation in ongoing interprofessional global health projects and research that identify healthcare solutions and build capacity in local communities, students will develop skills in critical thinking and research methodologies as well as the perspective needed to tackle complex issues in resource-poor regions worldwide. This program, including the scholarly project, helps students master the field of global health through research, practice and service.
