The Global Health Program was established in January 2010 and is housed with the Institute for Health and Society at 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.
