Office of Global Health
Global Health at MCW
Our goal is to develop a sustainable platform of local and global health partnerships
The 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).
Support Global Health
Join us to advance innovative knowledge changing life.
Research Seed Funds are used by faculty to support innovative scientific discovery. Faculty, in turn, have an opportunity to assess current methods or providing patient care in the United States and further consider innovation and cost effectiveness.
Neighborhoods to Nations
When we are invited, we strive to improve health equity locally and worldwide. As the catalyzing agent, we take advantage of our diverse skills and experiences of our faculty ad trainees.
It is an exciting time for us to facilitate global health activities with MCW’s campuses and global partners. Medical literature has illustrated the positive outcomes for the student, resident, or fellow involvement in global health educational and research opportunities.Learn more
