Goal, Objectives and Principles
The Office of Global Health's mission is to advance MCW’s mission of education, research, patient care, and community engagement through multi-institutional collaborations. Our vision for MCW to be a leader in global health that promotes health equity across neighborhoods and nations.
We hope to accomplish this through an unprecedented collaboration among the College’s over 25 departments, other outstanding Milwaukee-based institutions, and premier partners across the world.
Our goal is to develop a sustainable framework for multidisciplinary collaboration that integrates and advances the global health sciences.
Establish credible local and global partnerships with community-based organizations, universities, medical schools and healthcare delivery sites that offer education, research, patient care and community engagement opportunities for MCW faculty, medical and graduate students, residents and fellows.
Implement standardized agreements with local and global organizations to assure credit and excellence for trainee and faculty participation.
The Office of Global Health will make concerted efforts to identify interested faculty from a variety of disciplines from a range of departments and centers, engage students and trainees, and most importantly work toward identifying synergies between existing programmatic areas as well as new ones. The programmatic areas, listed below, represent an initial effort to begin to create virtual communities across the medical school and its partners clustered around thematic areas.
