The Center for Global Health addresses health problems that transcend national boundaries through an approach that includes service, training and research. The center is based in the Department of Medicine, where much of the basic research and student education takes place, but it also has international programs in Haiti, Brazil, Tanzania, India, and Qatar, where clinicians and investigators treat patients and conduct clinical research. Global health training is offered in the classroom, laboratory and field. Faculty and students from backgrounds in medicine, nutrition, agriculture, veterinary, social and basic life sciences come together through this program to solve global health problems.
