Global Health Pathway
The Global Health Pathway is one of the six MCW Scholarly Pathways that are a required for all MCW M1 and M2 students and optional in the M-3 year. Pathways allow students to individualize their medical training while exploring a career path of interest.
Under the direction of Academic Affairs and lead by Dr. Stephen Hargarten, the Global Health Pathway is designed for students interested in understanding the unique healthcare needs of patients, families, and communities both locally and globally, in/from neighborhoods to nations, and the challenges/assets of working in these areas of the world with diverse health care resources.
Core curriculum topics are consistent with those proposed by the Consortium of Universities for Global Health and other medical schools that have long been on the forefront of global health education and research. Pathway activities are coordinated with the office of the Associate Dean for Global Health.
