The Office of Global Health was established in January 2010 at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Our vision is to train the next generation of global health leaders and address local and global health inequities across neighborhoods and nations. Our mission is to reduce global health inequities through local and global multi-institutional collaborative partnerships in education, research, patient care and community engagement. Our goal is to develop a sustainable platform of local and global health partnerships to support and grow education, research, patient care and community engagement training and collaborative activities of our faculty and trainees.

WorldInteractive Global Map

Data was generated from the 2011 global health faculty survey that was developed collaboratively between the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit leadership. The goal is to provide a web-based avenue for the Medical College of Wisconsin Office of Global Health to showcase its faculty’s current global health activities in clinical care, education/training, research and community and public health efforts to faculty, trainees, external partners and potential funders and collaborators.

The Global Health Interactive map is an easily accessible inventory of faculty’s global health activities. It is our hope that it promotes interdisciplinary, intradepartmental faculty collaboration and provides opportunities to identify similar interests and garner research grant development. Furthermore, it allows Global Health Pathway Students to identify faculty mentors or advisors and scholarly project ideas and offers external funders and collaborators an opportunity to review our faculty’s global health activity.

To make updates to existing activities or additions to the map, please complete the Faculty Global Health Activity Form.
