The Global Health Recent Graduates Study: Obstacles and Opportunities to Employment in Global Health

To evaluate the experiences of recent graduates of global health programs entering the workforce, the Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II sponsored CUGH to implement “The Global Health Recent Graduates Study: Obstacles and Opportunities to Employment in Global Health” in the Fall of 2016. The study aimed to better describe and quantify student’s global health workforce transition from graduate education to initial employment.


The Global Health Engagement Initiative

The Global Health Engagement Initiative was a collaborative endeavor between CUGH and the Public Health Institute (PHI) to develop baseline research that can lead to programmatic changes within the infrastructure of the global health workforce that increases the visibility and participation of underserved minority populations within the field. Through the facilitation of three surveys to academic institutions, global health students, and early-career professionals, this initiative illustrated a picture of the academic field of global health in the United States and the obstacles minority individuals and minority-serving institutions experience.
