Program description: 

Demand is increasing for health professionals who can function competently in the global marketplace. From on-the-ground courses, clinical rotations, and research to on-campus student activities, Vanderbilt’s global health offerings for medical students introduce students to key topics and concepts in global health including diseases, root causes, and both clinical and community-based interventions appropriate for low-resource settings. Past student projects span over two dozen countries where VIGH has established partnerships and include a broad range of topics in global health, from biomedical sciences and clinical investigation to socio-cultural correlates of health and health care delivery. Participation in global health research and training programs and other directed studies provides students with a foundation for future work as international clinicians, researchers, and public health workers.
