Our goal is to develop a sustainable platform of local and global health partnershipsThe Office of Global Health was established in January 2010. 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.
Global burdens of disease are local and global in nature and scope.Since disease respects neither national boundaries nor government mandates, a better-educated, well-trained cadre of physicians and scientists in a particular country can be more effective in preventing the spread of disease to other parts of the world. (Acad Medicine 2010).
Education and Research
