Global Health Internships

Experience = Perspective

""When the theoretical becomes concrete, new insights emerge.

Our students exhibit passion in pursuit of global health knowledge, working in settings from rural clinics and nonprofits to labs and policy centers. 

Through these experiences, classroom and thesis work gains new depth and dimension and valuable relationships are formed.
