Stanford University

Stanford University, located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world.

The Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) strives to enable collaborative programs in global health for residents, medical students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and undergraduates by reaching across geographic, cultural, economic, and gender boundaries to inspire a new generation of global health leaders. CIGH creates partnered programs that build capacity both overseas and in the United States in underserved, low resource communities.

CIGH also serves as a resource to connect interested global health scholars to opportunities at Stanford University and beyond.
