About the Center for Global Health Education learning through meaningful partnerships

Global Health Education Research

Recent decades have witnessed a proliferation in trans-national health care exchange and collaborative initiatives. Meanwhile, global health education is becoming increasingly important in medical training. As the quantity of international opportunities have expanded, the quality of such experiences remains highly variable. The CGHE is committed to making meaningful contributions to the global health education discourse and is open to collaborators interested in similar issues.

Focus Areas

• Interprofessional global health education – the multidisciplinary nature of the global health discourse lends itself to interprofessional dialogue and mutual learning. We are studying the changes in perceptions of students from various healthcare disciplines regarding other professions as they complete the GHICC.

• Preparation for global health experiences – the CGHE has generated a comprehensive pre-departure training curriculum that must be completed by all students enrolled in international health electives. We are measuring subjective and objective outcomes before and after the electives to gauge efficacy of the training program.

• Host site impact – one of the critical gaps in the global health educational literature is in the area of impact of students on host sites. In collaboration with our international partners, we are starting to generate a framework to evaluate the effects of foreign medical student rotations on a host site or community.
