Innovative programs and partnerships
Global Health Program
at the David Geffen School of Medicine
Our vision is to catalyze opportunities to improve health globally.
To achieve this vision, we engage in multi-disciplinary and innovative education programs, research initiatives, and bilateral partnerships that provide opportunities for trainees, faculty, and staff to contribute to sustainable health initiatives and to address health inequities facing the world today.
"It’s incredibly rewarding to engage trainees in global health education, and to witness how they are inspired and transformed by their global health experiences. We believe that exposure to how research and medicine are practiced in other countries ultimately improves the care that trainees provide to patients in the United States and beyond, and makes them more committed to achieving health equity globally."
